    All USA games streamed on NHL.com in the US.

    Just about every game streamed on TSN.ca in Canada

    Some of the best hockey you can watch, anywhere.

    Anybody else tuning in?

    I remember us discussing the tourney last year.

    OF COURSE I'm watching.

    I understand that a World tournament has to be hosted outside North America but they don't seem to be as well attended.

    Hope the U.S. kids have a good showing but Canada needs to medal this year.

    I love that they are keeping the groups the same and holding the USA/Canada game on NYE. Great tradition for fans.

    I haven't found my hockey groove yet.

    Juniors is amazing hockey. For the love of the game too.

    Pitchforks and torches in Canada after a loss to the Czech Republic? I saw most of the USA/CZE game, and the Czechs weren't that good...

    USA has a snoozer against Germany before the NYE game against Canada, while CAN has to play a half decent Slovakian team.

    Lot of yelling at the TV at my house. Sutter didn't look too happy so I'm sure some asses got chewed up.

    Looking forward to the USA Canada game myself.

    Watching USA v. Germany now - the arena is empty - WTF? I thought Swedes like hockey. American goalie is 6'6" wow.

    Would anybody in the US be at a Swe/Fin group game in the middle of the afternoon? Probly not. I bet the medal rounds are well attended.

    Exactly what I expected in the USA/GER game - lot of cute stickwork, the kind of lazy play that will screw them against Canada on Tues.

    When Vancouver hosted the Tourney I saw a few games. Funny going from Canada Sweden at Rogers arena to Norway Latvia at the old Coliseum.

    Next year it's Toronto and Montreal as host cities I believe. Nice and close for "Mericans to come up and enjoy.

    Vancouver prices have skewed my thinking I guess. Doesn't everyone pay that?? Two nine dollar beers please.

    Mantha is playing well. Tomorrow we'll see how we fare against team USA.

    US d zone coverage has been a little weak. Laying down on the PK was a dubious choice. :bluduh

    A good game, first time I've seen either squad work well together. Bodes well for both in the medal round.

    Thanks for the own goal Canaduh

    Great game

    But US has tried too many stuff goals, instead of centering it

    Nearly tied it up with the goalie pulled.

    I should have had a calming beverage, I'm a little wound up. :lol3
