Drury, Callahan, Gaborik & Jokinen to Semis; Lundqvist Headed Home

Chris Drury, Ryan Callahan and Team USA is headed to the Olympic semi-finals with a 2-0 win over Switzerland yesterday. The Americans will face Finland in the first semi on Friday. Game recap.

...another exciting game from Team USA. Love seeing Drury and Callahan getting pressure minutes at the end of the game. Makes it that much more enjoyable to watch.

While, Marian Gaborik and Team Slovakia upset Henrik Lundqvist and Team Sweden last night by the score of 4-3. Slovakia will face Canada, who pounded Russia 7-3, in the other semi-final on Friday. Game recap.

Gaborik had a power play goal (third goal of Olympics) and increased his Olympic leading shot total to 27 in five games. Lundqvist made just 10 saves on 14 shots. For Gaborik's goal click here. to say I'm shocked by the result of this one. I tried to stay up and watch but didn't even make it to the end of the Finland/Czech game.

...not too upset to see Hank out of the Olympics. Less chance of a repeat of 2006.

...Gaborik better save some of these goals for the regular season.

Finally, Olli Jokinen and Finland will be heading to the medal round for the second straight Olympics after defeating the Czech Republic 2-0. Game recap.

I was stunned and horrified that Sweden lost.
