World Cup 2004 Begins!

The World Cup of Hockey 2004 begins today as eight nations gather their NHL All-Stars and play it out first in round-robin style to qualify for the tournament play.

The first two games to be played today were Team Finland, led by Saku Koivu (MON) and Team Czech Republic who is playing in the memory of their coach Hlinka. Featured on ESPN and the CBC in Canada, Team Finland beat the Czech's 4-0.

With the multiple Bond-esque exotic cities hosting this year's games, Team Germany finds themselves at a home game in Cologne, Germany to play against Team Sweden.
Team USA has their first game against rival Canada in the Bell Center in Montreal.

Keep coming back as I'll be sure to let you know what I think of the teams play.
