Canada vs Switzerland

Last night was perhaps one of the more entertaining games that I have ever personally attended. The atmosphere in the arena was electric from an hour before puckdrop, right through the game. I was able to get down to the glass for warm-ups and got some pretty good shots. Our seats weren't too bad either, a dozen rows up on the goal line.
It's somewhat concerning that Canada couldn't quite get the powerplay going, and I really wish they'd start playing the body more. Playing Toews on the top line with Crosby and Nash was nice to see, and I really wish we'd see more of that combo. Doughty as well looked great for a kid his age, and I liked him getting some powerplay time. I have to say, I felt a lot more comfortable going into the shootout with Brodeur in net than if it was Luongo.

Nice shot of Brodeur in warm up. Perry was the "puck-from-net-remover" throughout the warm up.

Big Joe and Sid. I'd like to see more out of Thornton.

Opening faceoff, not bad seats.
