Canada Defeats U.S. - Lose Jovo

Well it was nice to see some hockey again and it was even better to watch the Canadians beat the US. A pretty entertaining game all around(we even got to see a fight) in what should be the start to a great tournament... lets just hope we have seen the last of those terrible jerseys. It wasn't all good news for team Canada as Vancouver Canuck Ed Jovanovski is likely out for the remainder of the tournament. Expect Jay Bouwmeester to take Jovo's spot although it is being reported today that Scott Hannan will be in the lineup tonight.

As for the Americans they got off to a rough start but took over in the second half of the game. It was obvious their strategy was to get under the skin of Martin Brodeur, but Brodeur came up with several big saves to maintain the lead. The U.S. had an injury of their own losing Mike Modano to a "lower body injury". That's a tough blow to the Americans.

Anyway a preview of tonights game will be up shortly...
