While you’re waiting for the next NHL Playoff game to kick off, you should have been watching or taping the IIHF Championships that are going on in Helsinki, Finland. The other night the U.S. team and Canada squared off in a great game which climaxed in an OT win by the U.S. in overtime. Fantastic game that was on the NHL channel and will probably be replayed so keep an eye out for that.
The games continue through the week so be sure to catch them for some great action. You can stream most of the games for free on the IIHF YouTube channel so enjoy killing some time during the work week!
Another match between France and Kazakhstan saw Brendan Shanahan’s worst nightmare. An ugly hit by France’s Sasha Treille on Roman Starchenko left the Kazakhstan player on the ice out cold! After several scary moments and the bringing out of the spine board, Roman was able to wake up and sluggishly skate off the ice under his own power.
