The Opossum-Palooza

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

IHWC Update

The USA beat the Czech Republic!!! No matter how much I may get worked up about Alex Ovechkin and Team Russia, rest assured that, ultimately, I am firmly entrenched on the home team's side.

Speaking of Russia, the loss means the Czech team falls to the fourth seed in Group E and will have to take on the red hot top seed out of Group F. The USA grabs the third seed and earns a date with second seeded Sweden. In other news, Belarus defeated Switzerland in a semi-upset to earn a berth in the playoffs, while Slovakia trounced the Ukraine to move on and send the Swiss team home. Belarus faces Sweden on Thursday, while Slovakia takes on Canada tomorrow.
