1. The Ducks can win the series tonight! They are up 3-1 over the Sharks, and the last game of the Sharks was...er...PATHETIC. Fear the Fin thinks a win would be peachy. So does the friend I gave a Black Armour jersey to....but as a Canucks fan, an Anaheim win tonight means two things:
1a. Canucks will have home ice advantage
1b. Canucks DON'T have to play detroit, yet
So, for tonight, go Ducks!

2. Pittsburgh can end the series against the Flyers this afternoon. They just need Fleury be better than Biron, the Pens lead series 3-2. Watch the game and play the drinking game.

3. Stamkos got two goals against Belarus at the IIHF World Championships. Canada won 6-1 in their first game. The Belarusian head coach, Glen Hanlon is from Vancouver and used to play in goal for the Canucks. Notably, Hanlon allowed Gretzky's first NHL goal.

4. Canada will play Hungary next in the IIHF Worlds tomorrow, it's on TSN at 1:30pm PT. Watch it (it's tape delayed so don't check the score before). The Hungarians are a huge underdog, haven't play at the World level since 1939, they have now gotten back to the top 16 in the world. This game will be something like 12-0, clearly for the Canadians. I've facebooked all of my hungarian relatives of that prediction.

Interesting note: The hungarian team has only 2 drafted players, goalie Levente Szuper and forward Janos Vas. They have a lawyer and a phys ed teacher playing for them like it's drop in hockey.

"This is like their Stanley Cup,'' explained Hungarian coach Pat Cortina, who was born and raised in Montreal. "This is the hockey Mecca for them. Just the type of building and the way the players are treated in the `A' pool is so important. They don't have conditions like this too often.''

5. Chris Mason will be in goal for Canada when they play Hungary tomorrow. "Mason didn't even have time to do an exit interview with Blues coach Andy Murray before he was on a plane to Switzerland to answer the call of his country. He simply loves putting on the Maple Leaf" -CTV Olympics.
