Hey Renee, Canada's Going Down In The 2011 IIHF Women's Ice Hockey Championships

Was flipping through the various cable channels a few nights ago when I stumbled upon the third period of the USA-Sweden match in the IIHF women's hockey tournament.     Had forgotten the tournament was happening this month in Z├╝rich, Switzerland.and started on April 16.

Don't care if it is 'your game', in this tournament Team USA are the two time defending champs and so far are playing like it.

Team USA was in Group A in the preliminary round and knocked off Slovakia 5-0, Russia 13-1 and Sweden in the aforementioned match 9-1 to win their group and get the bye to the semifinals.

Your Canadian women were in Group B, and beat the host Swiss 12-0, Kazakhstan 7-0 and Finland 2-0  to win their group and also earn a bye into the semis.

The semifinals happening today are group play rematches.  Canada plays the Finns while we get the Russians with the winners going to the gold medal match.

The semifinal losers will play for the bronze.medal. 

But you know who we want in the gold medal match and it'll be on like Donkey Kong again.
