WHC Update - Quarters

So Russia and the US lost in the Quarterfinals. The US lost 6-0 to Sweden. Russia lost a shocker, 4-3 to the Czechs.

Canada is still going strong, and Crosby is tied for the overall points lead in the tournament, along with leading in goals scored. He has 7 goals and 6 assists in 7 games.

Malkin finished with 9 points (3 G, 6 A) and tied with teammate Ovechkin in point production. He was named one of the top three players for Russia.

For the Americans, Hilbert finished with three points (all assists) and was a -3, Malone with 4 points (2+2) and was -1. Hilbert and Malone were second and third in shots on the team. Orpik was pointless, but was also not a minus (he finished even in +/-).

For Slovakia, Tomas Surovy finished with four points (2+2) and led the team in shots. This is a great sign, in my opinion, for Surovy. He could use the boost in confidence. Let's hope that carries over to next season with the Pens.

So, I guess we should be cheering for Canada for gold. It would be great for Sid.
