About Me

My photo
Split personality. Liking the arts, especially opera, and hockey and Los Toros. I know, I know THAT one is non pc currently. But I can't help it saw some in Spain and got hooked, but good. But on the other hand right now opera and hockey are in the forefront!

Quick peeks into the IIHF and GOLD for USA Women!

Is this a Cousin of Chilly's??? :-)!
The Mascot for the IIHF 2011 Championship games in Slovakia!

  • During the IIHF World Championships Dennis Endras, signed by The Wild as a free agent last year and skated most recently right here at SLICE, wins a 2-0 shutout over Russia for a Germany, stopping  all 31 shots from a Russian team that skated Kovalchuk, Maxim Afinogenov and Tarasenko.
  • And the Americans leave Austria behind with a 5-1 win Montoya in net made 12 saves.
  • And Canada wins over Belarus with 4-1, although Burns and Clutterbuck did not score.
Other result from Friday and Saturday:
Finland vs Denmark 5-1;
Czech Republic vs Latvia 4-2;
Switzerland vs France 1-0;
Slovakia vs. Slovenia 2-1.
Norway vs Sweden 5-4

And the USA Women's National Team made it to a 3-2 overtime win over Canada Monday afternoon. Getting the GOLD!
That's the  third in a row win for the U.S. and the fourth time in the last five world championships the team left with the gold medal. Team USA at the IIHF world women’s championships now has four gold medals (2005, 2008, 2009, 2011) and nine silvers (1990, 1992, 1994, 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2004, 2007) .
