A surprise silver medal? On your 20th birthday? And you are just adorable? Well that earns you Hottie of the Day, Marianne St-Gelais. Just a fabu performance to get a silver in short track 500m for someone who was only suppose to medal in 2014. Félicitations Marianne!
Around the Olympics, Jaro was outplayed by Tomas Vokoun in the the Slovaks' 3-1 loss to the Czechs, with Pleks scoring the 3rd goal. The Canadian women just crushed the Swedes (defending silver medalists remember) 13-1. Our "Canadian solid performance" of the day goes to Britt Janyk and a quality 6th in the women's downhill.
On the other side of the coin, there was Canadian chokage yesterday aplenty. Emily Brydon a very disappointing 16th in the downhill. She is ranked 5th in the world. Even worse was Denny Morrison in the long track 1000m, just terrible finishing 13th, when he was really expected to medal. Own this podium, losers [/grabs crotch].
OK, hockey. Bring on the Swiss! 7:30 pm on CTV. The Swiss are coming off a 3-1 loss to the USA to open the tournament. Brodeur will get the start. Don't underestimate the Swiss. Outstanding goaltending in Jonas Hiller and Martin Gerber. And I believe we all remember losing to them 2-0 in Turin in 2006. Iggy scored two goals against Jonas Hiller over the weekend in a Flames win over the Ducks.
Be sure to taunt the Swiss Mister in the comments.
