Full marks to the Russian squad for not folding the tent. As a Canadian hockey fan, that loss certainly stings....but that's hockey.

I think both Canada and the Lightning met similar fates on Wednesday. Both had been pointing to one game for redemtion, both played fantastic and won that game and neither could sustain that intensity in the following game and got smoked. It took Canada until the 3rd to melt down and run out of gas, whereas the Lightning just didn't show up.

A lesson for 2 young teams that you have to play with the same intensity each game - especially against teams that are close in talent to yours. (Russia a little less talent, Pittsburg a little more talent)

Slightly off-topic

Russia's junior hockey champs kicked off Delta flight for being unruly

Hours after winning the World Junior Hockey title in Buffalo, members of Team Russia were kicked off a flight this morning for being either drunk or unruly.

WGRZ quotes police as saying the 30 team members were thrown off a Delta flight scheduled to leave Buffalo-Niagara International Airport because members of the team were intoxicated.

I've taken the morning Delta flight from BUF - ATL numerous times in the past and if it is that same flight, that's like friggin' 6 in the morning!
