Now that's how you play hockey!

The US finally showed the form that made it one of the favored teams in this tournament, beating the Russian team 5-3.

Coach Ron Wilson stayed with the lineup that delivered against the Slovaks. Forward Keith Tkachuk was the hero, scoring 4 goals, but it sounds like the whole team worked hard for the victory (due to family obligations and work schedule, Captain Holly was unable to watch the show).

Now we wait and see who will be next. It will be either Finland or the Czech Republic, depending on who wins the Canada-Slovakia game. Since the Slovaks are simply not a match for the Canadians, we will be playing Finland in the semifinals. Not quite what I predicted, but close.
