Olympics Update: Czech Republic Defeats Slovakia, 3-1.

Patrik Elias, the last Devil to make his debut in the Olympics, led the Czech Republic to victory of Slovakia, 3-1, last night in Vancouver.

Elias scored the first goal for the Czechs on a deflection off of his glove. The Czech captain finished with three shots on net. Jaromir Jagr and Tomas Plekanec (Montreal Canadians) tallied the other goals for the Czechs. Slovakia’s lone goal came from Marian Gaborik (New York Rangers).

Today’s Olympic Schedule:

USA vs. Norway – 3 p.m. (USA Network)

Zach Parise will once again play with Paul Statsny and Patrick Kane. They couldn’t find the net, but having more time together can enable this line to really click. Parise did have three shots on net in the team’s first game against Switzerland.

Switzerland vs. Canada – 7:30 p.m. (CNBC)

Martin Brodeur will get the start in net tonight for the Canadians. Everyone is expecting to see Brodeur play the puck much more than in the NHL, and I’m excited to see Brodeur use his full arsenal of skills without the trapezoid.

Slovakia vs. Russia – Midnight (CNBC)

Ilya Kovalchuk tallied a goal and an assist in Russia’s dominant win over Latvia. The Russian team is pretty stacked, but it’ll be interesting to see if Kovalchuk will become a consistent producer for his national team.
