    They talk about Stone's skating being weak. I guess you don't need top speed or a fancy stride to sneak into the open areas. Heatley wasn't the best skater either.

    P.S. What kind of name is "Gibson" for a Finnish goalie?

    Hat-trick for Stone. I wonder what he'll tweet after the game.

    Doesn't look good for Smith-Pelly. Blocked a shot and off to the hospital for x-rays.

    There's a pretty good chance that Canada and Sweden will meet in the semis or final. Wouldn't that be something.

    Huh? He scored the 3rd goal. It's 3-1 after 1.

    I was just coming on to say how Stone reminds me of Heatley (minus all the douchebaginess, of course). Nothing too flashy, just a whole lot of finish. Awesome.

    Are there any boxscores of the WCJ games anywhere? Trying to find out if Zibanejad has 1 or 2 goals. Found this on twitter:

    Friberg, lettjvel, Zibanejad, Friberg, lettjvel. Summering av frsta 20.

    Google translation:

    Friberg, led bastard, Zibanejad, Friberg, led bastard. Summary of the first 20th.

    I'm guessing "led bastard" is Latvia?

    "Led bastards" back within 1. Sweden still leads 4-3 but this is not at all what was expected.

    5-3 Sweden, now, 5 minutes to go in the 2nd.

    Wait, PP goal for Z-bad to make it 6-3 now. Same goal as the one-timer he scored in the pre-season.

    Apparently his first goal was nearly identical. Good for us.

    so the biggest hold up for Stone is his skating? well can't the sens get him into some power skating program? I remember alot of NHLers doing those over the summer.
