  • You can take a look at FanSided’s preview of the Finland vs Sweden game here. Players to keep an eye on today include Daniel Alfredsson for Sweden and Teemu Selanne, both of whom could be in there final Olympics competition.
  • FanSided also has a great look at the atmosphere surrounding today’s United States vs Canada showdown, including the bets between both nation’s leaders, as well as a great Open Letter to Canada regarding hockey in the US.
  • It will be interesting to see what effect (if any) yesterday’s Women’s Gold Medal match has on the United States and Canada. The Canadians will attempt to send the second US team packing in as many days, whereas the Men’s team will by default be avenging yesterday’s loss.

Best Dressed:

Much like yesterday’s Women’s tournament, all eyes will be on the United States and Canada. However, the best dressed match up will be Finland vs Sweden. Sweden has the best uniforms in the tournament and Finland’s are among the nicest as well.

TMMOTS Pregame Warm Up Song:

I was going to go patriotic with today’s Pregame Song. Then yesterday’s Gold Medal game happened. America is mad. I think some good old metal is needed to get pumped up.
