The Finals are set and it’s the hosts against a cinderella story here in the best of 3.
Team Canada cruised into the finals, while Team Europe shocked a lot of people as they find themselves looking to pull off a giant upset here in the Finals.
Team Canada had very little trouble making their mark here in the World Cup of Hockey.
After running through round robin play, Team Canada had a tough task against Russia in the Semi Final. Canada actually fell behind in the 2nd period 2-1 before rattling off 3 straight goals to take control of the game.
Brad Marchand played the hero role, scoring back to back goals to give Canada 3-2 lead they would never relinquish.
C Sydney Crosby continued his dominant performance in the win over Russia as he got things going with a goal in the first period. Crosby has compiled 7 points as he has 3 goals and 4 assists to his credit.
The key to Canada’s success this tournament has been their rapid pace and ability to attack the net.
Team Canada has had no issues finding the back of the net as they keep continuous pressure on and put a lot of shots on goal.
Team Europe once again shocked a top participant in the World Cup of Hockey as they took down Sweden in overtime to secure their spot in the Finals.
Tomas Tatar found the back of the net for the 2nd time at the 3:43 mark of overtime to shock Sweden and advance Team Europe. Tatar has compiled 4 points in the tournament with 3 goals and an assist.
The win had a lot of people scrambling to rewrite their stories as Team Europe was picked pre tournament by many to finish dead last.
The Finals territory is brand new to almost every player on the Team Europe roster.
Compiled of 8 European nations that don’t include Russia, Finland, Sweden, and the Czech Republic, this roster is made of a bunch of 2nd and 3rd liners that look to make history and pull off one of the greatest upsets in hockey history.
To pull off the upset, slowing down Team Canada’s attack is a must. Team Europe has played fast all tournament, but in this matchup, that fits right into Team Canada’s strategy.
Expect Team Europe to try and play possession more and not allow Canada to get any sort of counter attacks as that will be the doom of them.
