Quick Worlds Update: Both Bobby Ryan and Cam Fowler scored in Team USA's 5-2 victory over Luca Sbisa and Team Switzerland. The Swiss will not be moving on to the quarter finals, but Team America (f*ck ya!) will. On Thursday, the Americans will face Team Finland, again. Last time the two teams met, Team USA beat the then heavily favored Finns 5-0. That same day, the Canadians will face Slovakia. Slovakia certainly have the potential for an upset, as they handed Team USA its only loss.
Series Record & Storyline: Us 0 - Them 1. The Kings are the Cinderellas of this year's playoffs. The mainstream media types are head over heels for this story of the Little Eighth-Seed That Could. They are now 11-1 in the playoffs. Crap. Phoenix looked out-gunned. Let's hope they learned something on their day off.
