The preliminary round of the 2014 Men’s World Hockey Championship wrapped up in Minsk, Belarus today. The top eight teams qualified for the quarterfinals which begin on Thursday. Many of the usual suspects (Canada, Russia, Sweden, USA, Finland, Czech Republic) advanced, as did a couple of surprises (France and Belarus).
Toronto Maple Leafs Nazem Kadri, Morgan Rielly, James Reimer (Canada), Jake Gardiner (USA) and Nikolai Kulemin (Russia) will have their sights set on World Championship gold as the elimination stage of the tournament begins. That brings us to this week’s trivia question:
Last week, I asked you guys who were the top four leading scorers in Game 7s in Leafs history since 1993. Unfortunately, I may have bitten off a little more than I could chew with that question, as I only received one response. Sorry Ian, your guess was incorrect. The answer? Doug Gilmour, Wendel Clark, Gary Roberts and Alexander Mogilny.
The leaderboard after Week 2 is, of course, unchanged:
Bob Boardway: 1
Everyone else: 0
Fear not, gentle reader, as just one correct answer could have you tied with Mr. Boardway atop the rankings. You may or may not have much time depending on when I decide to end this contest, so don’t miss out on an opportunity to have me write about a topic of your choosing on your blog or Editor In Leaf, whichever you decide. Winners can also choose to write a guest post for us.
You have until Friday at 5 p.m. Eastern Standard Time to submit an answer. Good luck, and Godspeed.
