Lindy and the worlds

Lindy Ruff moved to 1-0 lifetime in international competition today, as Canada topped Belarus, 6-1, in its opening game of the world championships. The Canadians are expected to win gold.

According to the Ottawa Citizen, while this is Ruff's first time coaching at the worlds, he did get to experience the 2008 worlds in Halifax and Quebec City, where he sat in as an observer.

"I got a real good feel for it last year, when I saw what the fans from the other countries would do with the singing and the chanting, and how much they get into it," Ruff said. "I thought it was pretty cool."

The worlds can be followed at IIHF.com.
