Ha, how rired am i, I have been posting comments in the wrong post.

Yes, great shot Garth and the Swiss need to score at least three after scoring only two goals in their first three games.

Only highlight of the Czech v. Slovakia game is the BBC commentators on my stream. Otherwise Czechoslovakia is completely dominating through the first period.

It will be interesting to see if the Swiss can find their offense.  Have they not been scoring simply because they don’t need to or has the stifling defense been what they had to do because they lack scoring?

Garth, I think they are offensively challenged.  Not familiar with most of their roster, Brunner may be the most gifted offensive player.

They know how to play a defensive game and with Hiller in net, probably the way to go, but now I am not sure if they play an offensive game.

This may sound nitpicky, but the whole back story to this game is the very fact that it’s between the Czech Republic and Slovakia, the two countries that emerged out of Czechoslovakia in the early 90s.

Not nitpicky at all. I totally screwed the pooch on that one and I know better than that re: Czech Republic / Slovakia. Trying to do too much at once, thanks for the correction.
