Good morning sports fans. The World Championship round robin is in it’s second to last day and spots in the Quarterfinals are up for grabs. The NHL brings us game 2 in the East tonight.

IIHF Worlds

10:15am ET - Team Canada vs Norway

2:15pm ET - Russia vs Latvia

Canada and Russia play both today and tomorrow to finish up preliminary play. After a lackluster performance against the Swiss this weekend the Canadians need to ramp up their play heading into the elimination rounds. Tomorrow they will play the desperate Finns who will need a win to continue. Russia, along with the US and Sweden, are solidly headed into the quarters and just need to solidify their status as Gold Medal favorites. Tuesday, the US/Russia game might be the best match of the tournament so far. Prepare to avoid total concentration on work.

Sweden plays before tomorrow’s thread comes out at 6:15am vs the Slovaks and their Avs 3rd jersey kits.
