Some of the comments from the British guy…

“Nasty, bubbling, bouncing puck!”

“Moving from left wing to right wing”... actually the other way around.

“Gonna have another go, and Jonas Hiller is there once more.”

“It was there for the taking for Jagr, he could not take it.”

“Good goal”. Actually no controversy, just a good goal, “into the webbing” for the Swiss.

Well Latvia is playing the Swedes tough through 1. Definitely rooting for them to pull some small miracle and grab a point today.

-Ted Nolan is coaching Latvia?  Can he simply not get enough of coaching undermanned teams?  What does he do in the offseason, work as the third base coach for the Marlins?

-Nice to see hockey’s taking off in Russia.  What are there, like 100 people at the Sweden/Latvia game?  Nice representation.  I think I see Florida Panthers jerseys in the crowd.

-Sweden… sort of… sucks at hockey.  No Lidstrom, Zetterberg, Franzen… not a lot going on there.  As I type this they just went up 4-2, but still… not very impressive.
