    I believe it was the US reserve, reserve Ice Hockey team they beat 4-2 , so dont be too excited . As for the Loghead, I suspect he is busy currently having his shirt lifted by some gentleman friend of his ?

    Yes a good result to win. Sport is littered with strange against the current odds results like this. I guess even a Slovak dog has to have its day .

    They beat the USA 4 to2 so they have beaten one of the top teams in the world George. Check the resuts mate. We lost to canada 3 to 2 in a hard fought game.

    Let me get this right , so far in this IHFF-WC, Super Slovakia have beaten the hapless Swiss 1-0 , the terrible Bells and a French team just 5-4 , who were almost relegated last year . So Slovensko have not beaten a team in the top 10 .

    Beating Canada is a bit of dream, one would think ….?

    well done Slovakia. Game against Canada will be tough but lost the first game which they should of won. The team has been improving every game and I am sure they can do it. Good luck guys.
