slovakia, the ice-hockey world vice-champion 2012

happy heroes, my dear slovak team :-) source? here at facebook

2002 + 2012, slovakia against russia in the finals. in 2002 was our (=slovak) team the winner, could history repeat itself? no, unfortunately, not. in a really nice + fast game with the fewest fouls i've ever seen (only 3 harmless issues) won the little bit better russian team 6 : 2.

go slovakia go for gold in the ice-hockey world championship finals against russia in helsinki / finland tomorrow ... david against goliath, isn't it?

do you speak finnish? no? it doesnt matter, you will understand how slovakia made it into the finals against czech republic today and see all goals as well, anyway :-) ... game score? 3 : 1. best players? imho miroslav satan, scorer of 2 goals today and the slovak goalkeeper jan laco



it is such a nice feeling, my dear ... me, happy ... at least for one day :-)

well, the slovak ice-hockey didn't had much luck recently ... just remember the winter olympic games in vancouver / canada 2 years ago as the team lost in semifinals against canada 2 : 3 and the poor slovak captain, top scorer and hero pavol demitra didn't succeed to score the game equalizer in the last seconds as canadian keeper roberto luongo made a great, great save on his shot ... in the bronze medal game then they have lost against finland ...

a year later in the championship held in slovakia they didn't make it in the play-offs despite good ice-hockey played but lack of luck ... and the real catastrophe happened in september 2011 as the YAK-42 airplane with the russian team lokomotiv jaroslavl crashed in the volga river ... pavol demitra + 3 czech national players + many russian and other nations players died as well ... R.I.P ice-hockey heroes, we will never forget you, promised ...
