Canada Squeaks by Switzerland in Men's Olympic Hockey, Is Team Canada in Trouble?

Save to delicious Saved by 0 users



Most Canadians are not terribly concerned with Canadian athletes winning gold at the Winter Olympics, with the one exception of the men's hockey team. Hockey is Canada's sport and we expect to dominate in international hockey competitions. So many Canadians are undoubtedly concerned that Team Switzerland held Canada to a 2-2 tie and only lost in the final shootout. Although the Swiss team beat the Canadian men's hockey team the last Winter Olympics in Turin, Switzerland is a middle power in international hockey. Which begs the question, if the Swiss gave the Canadian team this much trouble do they have a shot at gold against the stronger Russian, American and Swedish men's Olympichockey teams?
