The Canadian women's hockey team beat the defending Swedish silver medalists 13-1 today. That brings the Canadian's aggregate total to 41 goals in just three games, and they have allowed 2. They outshot the Swedes 52-13. :shock:
10-1 is the closest game the Canadian women have had.
Canada's ridiculously easy route to the semi-finals has further fueled the discussion that there's really no point in playing these games since the U.S. and the Canadians are head and shoulders above everyone else. The women's American team has won 12-1 (China) and 13-0 (Russia) and play Finland tomorrow morning.
Since the women's world championship was sanctioned by the IIHF in 1990, Canada and the U.S. have only lost four games to other teams. (2 wins for Sweden, 2 wins for Finland). 4 in 20 years... or once every 5 years. :shock:
