    i think a huge square play hits in olympics tomorrow

    Slovenia +4.5

    they lose to russia 5-2 in a game that was a lot closer. they beat slovakia. usa played a crazy game today. slovenia still in the tournament, everything to play for. i think they score at least once. so USA has to put up 6 to cover this. they are a good fast team but i dont see them scoring 6 on just 24 hours rest

    in the game versus russia they played a horrible first period being outshot 18-4 (trailed 2-0). since then they have played solid hockey.

    and the last thing that seals the deal for me is if they are trailing by a few late they will not pull the goalie because they have a nice -1 goal differential right now. if they are 1-2 with a decent goal differential they are looking at playing a team like norway or latvia in the knockout rounds. if they get blitzed maybe they have to play switzerland or czech.

    they play close and tight

    USA 4-1

    Like your thinking on this one. I've been getting killed laying juice so far on the likes of the Czechs and Slovakia looks like they're sleep walking, brutal.

    I like the under on the obscure Norway vs Austria, 5.5.

    Weird spot.....US really needs to win outright but differential won't matter to win the group

    Seems like the +4.5 is solid but I'm not fading US Hockey.....better game to hit live maybe

    Why is this a square play again ? Anyway, USA has all four lines that can score, something that Russia did not have against Slovenia. Slovenia might have to rest Kopitar a bit more: he cannot be playing 30 mins a game. So yeah, this is not a clearcut game. I am staying away: the Olympic format sucks until the playoffs start.

    Forgot that was their first win ever, maybe a let down by both, Under 6.5 is probably the play
