Vancouver Olympics: Canada vs. Russia Hockey Live Online (UPDATED)
Canada vs. Russia Live Stream: It’s just minutes until the much-awaited ice hockey match between Canada and Russia kicks off, and the game means as much to Russian fans as it does to the Canadians. This is something everyone’s been talking about. But a lot of people didn’t believe it would be in the quarterfinals.
The rivalry between these two countries has been thriving since the infamous 1972 “Summit Series”. And tonight, the contention is much more exciting because the game will pit Sidney Crosby, who captained the Pittsburgh Penguins to the 2009 Stanley Cup title, against Russia’s Alex Ovechkin, the NHL’s most valuable player the past two seasons.
This game has the makings to be an instant classic, with both sides carrying the immense weight of expectations from their respective nations.
UPDATE: Canada won over rival Russia 7-3 in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics men’s ice hockey quarterfinals. Team Canada will be going to the semifinals on Friday to play against the winner of the Sweden—Slovakia quarterfinal match.
