The Opossum-Palooza

It's okay. We don't know what the name means either.

IHWC Update

Russia defeated Switzerland 6-3 to remain undefeated in the tournament and clinch the top seed in Group F. Canda suffered their first defeat at the hands of the Czech Republic, allowing Finland to move into the top seed in Group E on the strength of their 3-0 win over Norway. Norway's loss also means that the USA has clinched the final spot in the playoff round out of Group E. Canada and Finland play tomorrow, and Canada needs to win to wrest away the top seed in Group E. In Group F, the top three seeds are set, while Switzerland and Slovakia are vying for the fourth and final seed. Switzerland is in the drivers seat, but a Swiss loss or tie against Belarus coupled with a Slovakian win over the Ukraine would push Slovakia into the playoff round. It's all very exciting and I really wish there were some way I could actually watch these games. Russia-Sweden tomorrow could be exciting as all hell.

Maybe I'll just fly to Latvia.
