Canada Crushes Europe 4-1; Awaits Semi-Finals Opponent

While both of tonight's World Cup of Hockey combatants entered their showdown with a spot in the semi-finals assured, there were high stakes at play for this clash between Canada's hockey establishment and the European conglomerate cobbled together for this tournament's sake. 

A win tonight and the victor would avoid Team Sweden and wait out a match with Team North America or Team Russia -- opponents that seem favourable relative to the Tre Kronor.

With tonight's 4-1 victory, Canada now awaits either their time honoured cross-Atlantic rivals in Russia or some of their country's young in the semi-finals. And they made it look so, so easy. Without Shea Weber, Ryan Getzlaf and Carey Price, the Canadians dispatched Europe in short order, outshooting Europe 46-20 in the process.

Exhale, everybody. That was undoubtedly the best game of the tournament so far, and if you were watching, count yourself lucky. It will probably end up being the best game of the tournament, period. With a semifinal berth at stake, Team Sweden and Team North America turned in a high-octane thriller that ended in a fitting fashion: An electrifying 3-on-3 OT with end-to-end rushes, dramatic saves, and a beauty of a game-winning goal. 

If you missed this one, you'll want to go ahead and watch a replay of the entire game, because this matchup was one for the ages. Sure, there's no history or bad blood between Sweden and this North America team, but there was a whole lot of skill and talent on the ice between the two teams, and we sure saw plenty of it.
