Canada Gives Americans Their First Setback

There seems to be a lopsided affair in the Pool seatings in the IIHF World Championships have the Canadians meeting Team USA in a prelim matchup before they meet again in the Finals.

Rick Nash, blue chipper from the Blue Jackets, scored on a breakaway to help his team take a 3-1 win against their arch rivals. Canada is a perfect 3-0 in the tournament.

Mike Modano reportedly didn't play like himself after suffering a bruised arm. Also, Team USA was without new additions Ryan Suter and Zach Parise. The Americans could have needed them both this time around.

Other notables: Canada's next opponent will be the evil* Sweden team, the winner of group C. The Tickets are being scalped in Euros. ($170 CDN, $129 US)

* = Evil according to my friend Jes.
