Super Series? More Like Sleeper Series!

Could the organizers of the "Super Series" that's underway right now (Canadian juniors vs Russian juniors in a commemorative 8-game series 35 years after the fabled 1972 meeting) possibly have imagined a worse outcome than what we've seen to date? With Game 5 only minutes away from completion, and Team Canada up 8-1 in that game and about to take a 5-0 lead in the series (meaning there's nothing left to decide except whether Russia will actually manage to win a game or not), it's not exactly living up to its billing.

On the other hand, as a Canadian, I suppose this is at least preferable to it being 5-0 the other way! And that's about the only silver lining I can find for it.
