Undeterred, the International Ice Hockey Federation, never one to turn its back on
The predictable result thus far? We are kicking their collective commie asses, following up Monday’s 4-2 win with a 3-0 shutout today. Somewhere, Paul Henderson’s botox is smiling.

Just to be on the safe side, can we borrow that stick Mr. Clarke?

Update: Well, it's now the eve of Game 7 and we're up...6-0. From what I've watched of this series, an eight game sweep is not out of the question.
