Canada wins, Norway loses; No Rangers with points

Today marked the second win of round robin play for Canada and the second loss of round robin play for Norway. Canada disposed of Austria by a score of 6-0, and Norway was dropped by Finland 5-1. Both Mats Zuccarello of Norway (20:51 TOI, 4 SOG, -1) and Rick Nash of Canada (10:26 TOI, 3 SOG, +1) were held off the score sheet.

Canada’s next game is a showdown with Finland on Sunday to determine Group B’s winner. Norway takes on Austria on Sunday as well, but Norway will not make the medal round.

Through this evening, no Rangers have tallied a point in any Olympic contest.

    Obviously Norway won’t get a medal, but I think that mathematically they can still win the gold. And can even lose to Austria. They just have to win on Feb 18,19,21,23. All they’ve lost so far is a chance at a bye on the 18th.
    Or am I misunderstanding completely.

  2. I don’t think there have been any challenging games for the US or Canada yet. I look forward to this weekends games to see if any of the Ranger players rise to the occasion. Big time game for both the US & Russia tomorrow morning. I want to see something from Callahan offensively since that’s basically what makes the big bucks for NHL hockey players. Callahan wants big money on a long term deal. Show us why you diserve that much money. It’s ludacris that Cally is demanding 7 mil per with 11 goals on the season. He was playing a prominent role on the US top line. Time for some points Cally.

    Lundqvist has a point. He got an assist in the 1st game.

    Hard to gauge the teams so far as it has been the front runners playing the bottom teams. Looking forward to the US vs Russian game, should be a barnburner.
