King Henrik Takes Gold, 5 Other Rangers Medal

Congrats to Team Sweden on winning the Gold in today’s final game of the 2006 Winter Olympics. Congrats also to Team Finland on a great tournament, winning Silver, and a hard fought and great final game to watch.

Final NY Rangers medal count form these games:

  • Henrik Lundqvist, Goal, Sweden—Gold Medal
  • Ville Nieminen, Forward, Finland—Silver Medal
  • Marek Malik, Defense, Czech Republic—Bronze Medal
  • Jaromir Jagr, Forward, Czech Republic—Bronze Medal
  • Martin Rucinsky, Forward, Czech Republic—Bronze Medal
  • Martin Straka, Forward, Czech Republic—Bronze Medal

Also making a showing for NYR and keeping me watching throughout the tournament:

  • Darius Kasparaitis, Defense, Russia—Finished 4th
  • Fedor Tyutin, Defense, Russia—Finished 4th
  • Marcel Hossa, Forward, Slovakia—Lost in Quarterfinals

So, I guess my predictions didn’t come to be, but overall it was a great tournament to watch. For every blowout game there was great one to follow it up.
