Olympic Men's Hockey Bracket

Here are the Results and Future Predictions of the Olympic Hockey Tournament at the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver, Canada.


How It Works

The Tournament started with a Round Robin where 12 qualifying countries played 3 games each. After these Preliminary Games, the teams were Ranked 1-12 according to the points they accumulated and they were scheduled into a Single-Game Knockout Tournament.


The Predictions


The Semi-Finals are scheduled for Friday. The USA is playing Finland and Canada is playing Slovakia. Both games should be exciting but we're predicting a US-Canada final because it's such a Great Rivalry. Canada beat the Americans for the Gold Medal in the Women's Hockey Tournament. Can the American Men take back the Hockey Crown? We don't think so!

    CHEERLEADING IS LIKE DANCE GYMNASTICS MIXED TOGETHER WITH WORDS. AND DANCE AND GYMNASTICS ARE CONSIDERED SPORTS.
