The semifinals have ended and there’s no surprise that Team Canada finds itself two wins away from capturing their second World Cup of Hockey title.
Their opponent, though, seems to be the talk of the tournament.
Team Canada will face off with a surprise finalist, Team Europe, in a best-of-three final series, which begins on Tuesday evening. Both Team Canada and Team Europe come from Group A, which also featured Team Czech Republic and Team USA. Both the Czechs and the Americans went winless in the preliminaries, while Team Europe’s only loss was to the Canadians in each team’s final preliminary game.
