Canada vs Russia

It's do or die for Canada tonight (and Russia of course). I'm not sure what I give them for chances. They haven't been playing well as a team and that seems to be the excuse du jour. They'll be starting with Luongo so we'll see how he stands up the Alex and the Russian boys. The top guys have to bring it tonight or they're out...people talk about Iginla and Crosby scoring but they seem to have a tough time against the good teams (they were scoring big against Norway and Germany but not against the Swiss and US). Pronger will have to step up as well because the Russians have 2 powerhouse lines that can score at will.

The jury is out. I will cheer Canada on, but I think if they don't have the lead by the mid point of the second period they might be done.
