Tampa looks to close the deal on their series with the Canadiens, the Rangers squeak one out to stay alive, and we can almost stop talking about the Flames soon, thank dog.

First of all, boo to the Canada/France game being on at 3:00 am PDT. Anyway, they pulled out a 4-3 win over France and guaranteed themselves a spot in the Quarter-Finals. Jordan Eberle and Tyler Seguin each scored twice for Canada, who move to 5-0 and have a game against a much tougher opponent in the Swiss tomorrow morning, also at the ungodly hour of 3 am.

Tonight Montreal look to keep their season alive as they take on Tampa Bay at home in the only game on the schedule. They staved off elimination last time with a 6-2 win in Tampa, and hope that they can actually recreate that kind of offence again tonight. Last night, the Rangers got a goal late from Chris Kreider, then Ryan McDonagh scored in OT to give the Rangers a 3-2 win. Meanwhile over in Calgary, the Flames folded like the Alberta PC's and blew a lead, dropping a 4-2 decision. Anaheim can eliminate Calgary Sunday night, which will give ISIS more time to recruit as they don't have to compete with the Flames for the hearts and minds of the youth of Calgary.
