WOW! In a huge upset, Sweden was STUNNED by underdog's Belarus! After many watched Sweden kick the crap out of Canada, they had to be a favorite in the medal games, but now, after a stunning loss to Belarus......I think it will eb all downhill from here for the Swedes. If Canada and Gretzky stop crying long enough, maybe they can start playing some good hockey and get back in the gold medal running!

I saw this at work... what an upset!! A huge win for Belarus. I hope it's not a fluke. I'm a huge Vladimir Kopat fan. The only thing that would be more shocking is if Matt D overcame his shortcomings and attitude problems to become a productive member of society.

The best part was when the goalie got hit in the face by the puck, the puck trickled in the goal and the guy diving to save it rammed his grill into the goalpost.  Big thumbs up

lol. I never really knew Hockey was an olympic sport until these games rolled around. In the past, I've only watched what my parents have turned on and that's just been ice skating and such.

But yes, the final US/Germany results would be nice!

I think the difference in the Sweden-Belarus game was the sloppy play of Swedish goalie Tommy Salo. No goalie should let in a shot from 70 feet. I play goalie, and I know that letting in a shot like that is absolutely unacceptable. Especially at the proffesional level like that! Even if Sweden could have gotten out of the third period with a tie, they'd have probably won it. But that huge mistake by Salo cost them the game and now they're out of the tournament.
