It's a cover up. What really happened is FINALLY some athlete punched this insufferable puke in the face. I'm guessing it was one of the woman hockey players.

So Russia was eliminated from Hockey. So much for Putin's comments about Russia's team being a class above the USA, huh?
Its 1-and-done now, right? If so, it looks like USA has to beat Czech Republic, then Canada to get into the gold medal game, but they only need to beat the Czech Republic to get into the Bronze medal game?
The USA/Czech game starts in a few minutes, I think. Generally I don't make any effort to avoid seeing olympic results before the games air, but I'll probably do that for the Semifinals and medal games if the USA wins today.
I would assume it's a matter of "luck." Meaning that the brackets were probably set before the preliminary rounds were played. So, the quarterfinals said A1 v. B2, A2 v. C1, B1 v. C2, etc, etc. Had Russia finished ahead of the US, or Finland ahead of Canada, then they would be in separate brackets.
That's just a wild guess though. I say we still blame Putin.
