Vancouver Olympics: Canada vs. Slovakia Hockey Semifinals (UPDATED)
Canada vs. Slovakia Hockey Live Stream: Canada advanced to the semifinal round of the men’s hockey event of the 2010 Vancouver Olympics after defeating their long time rival Russia 7-3 in the quarterfinals.
Team Canada faced difficult hurdles through out the competition, as they were defeated by the United States 5-3 in the preliminaries and needed a shootout to beat the Swiss team. There is no question that Canada is a powerhouse ice hockey team that has a very dangerous roster but Slovakia should not be taken lightly as they might score another big upset tonight.
Slovakia managed to beat the defending Olympic champions Sweden 4-3 Wednesday night to face the Canadians. This game will decide who will face the the Americans in the gold medal match. Team USA scored six first-period goals to defeat Finland 6-1 in the other semi-final clash.
Canada is most likely to win this game and with Russia and Sweden out of the picture, I’m sure hockey enthusiasts want to see a USA vs. Canada re-match come Sunday.
