WJC Bronze Medal Game- Canada vs Finland

One last chance for some redemption this afternoon... (Photo by Richard Wolowicz/Getty Images)

It's not where they wanted to be, and it speaks volumes about the passion for hockey in this nation that this team has already failed in some eyes. I may have come across as being a bit harsh yesterday, but I was merely pointing out Hockey Canada's intentions. My issues are with the machine, not the ones on the ice. Either way, there's still a chance to close the tournament on a winning note, and let's face it, it's really better to win Bronze than lose to get Silver, especially the way it happened last year. The Canadians take on a Finnish team that was game until the end against their most bitter Scandinavian rivals, losing to Sweden in the shootout. So Canada and Finland it is, and truth be told, it could be worse. I'd rather see my country play for Bronze than bow out like some sleeping giants babies...

Mark Visentine gets the start for Team Canada after coming to replace Scott Wedgewood, who left the game after getting run over on the Russians 4th goal the other night. They've also lost Boone Jenner for tonight's game, suspended for his spear on Russia's Yevgeni Kuznetsov after being clobbered by Isdar Isangulov (who was suspended for tonight's gold medal game for his hit to the head on Jenner).
