Last, but certainly not least, we have the motley crew of Group D. With a pleasant mix of controversy (England and France, looking at you) plus a dash of mystery, Group D promises to have some fireworks in the group stage.

In the spirit of hockey we would normally suggest playing this game with Labatt or Molson. However, since only American teams are left, feel free to crack open a Budweiser or two or fifteen if you wish.
