2008 SPENGLER CUP

I like this tournament. One day, I will attend. Watching 5 teams play a round-robin tournament in a church-like arena while drinking hot wine in the Swiss Alps. What's not to like?

This year Team Canada (culled from the Euro pro leagues) will play as follows:
December 26 1pm CT – Canada vs. Energie Karlovy Vary (CZE)
December 27 1pm CT – Canada vs. HC Davos (SUI)
December 29 2:30pm CT – Canada vs. ERC Ingolstadt (GER)
December 30 2:30pm CT – Canada vs. Moscow Dynamo (RUS)
December 31 5am CT – Championship Game

LINKS: December 26, 2008

Brad Isbister, Micki Dupont and Jean-Guy Trudel scored for TC. I was only able to see the 3rd period. It is always nice to see games from Davos. Maybe they'll install stained glass windows at the Phone Booth!

However, I don't think I like the ads on the pants.

I missed the game with my various Saturday afternoon activities. But by all accounts it was a good game. Canada will have a key game with Dynamo later on.

Jimmy Waite was the goalie for Ingolstadt. TC needed the win. They face the Commies on December 30th and could be gonzo with a loss.

Canada fell behind early and were unable to make up the difference. So the forces of evil take this round. Good thing Canada won the junior game against the USA and that the Manitoba Moose beat the Chicago Wolves.
