An exhibition to an exhibition? Don’t mind if we do.

Sure, this isn’t real, meaningful, NHL hockey. It’s not even actual World Cup of Hockey play. But it’s hockey nonetheless, and it’s (kind of) on television.

I’ll take what I can get.

Play began at 11:00 between Team Sweden and Team Finland, and continued at 11:30 Central today between Team Czech Republic and Team Russia. Tonight’s fun begins at 7:00 Central on ESPN 2 between Team Europe and Team North America, featuring Colton Parayko.
