The Russians are back on top and the United States takes a tumble in the third Power Rankings of the 2014 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship.
1.  Russia  Russia:  Sochi Bear sits on Ovi’s lap and looks happier
2.  Sweden  Sweden:  Fun fact: 99 (Gretzky) – 13 (Sundin) = 86 (Klasen)
3.  Canada  Canada:  As AC/DC said, “If you want blood, you got it”
4.  Latvia  Latvia:  Thank God Shea Weber doesn’t play for Kazakhstan
5.  France  France:  The Slovaks went through a Baptiste of fire
6.  Norway  Norway:  Sondre Olden would have been cheaper than David Clarkson
7.  Belarus  Belarus:  Sergei Makarov. Sergei Fyodorov. Sergei Kostitsyn.
8.  Czech  Czech Republic:  We’re finding new and innovative ways to lose
9.  Finland  Finland:  Nightwish just put Rammstein in a chokehold
10.  USA  United States:  Viktor Tikhonov looks pretty good for an 83-year-old
11.  Germany  Germany:  Sadly, we did zip for Zepp – time to play with way more pep
12.  Denmark  Denmark:  We cut back on pre-game beer and hot dogs
13.  Italy  Italy:  At least we’re not doing community service
14.  Kazakhstan  Kazakhstan:  Say “Zhailauov from Krasnoslobodtsev” ten times fast
15.  Slovakia  Slovakia:  Satan is real, and he skates among us
16.  Suisse  Switzerland:  It’s like William Tell shooting himself in the keister
