The game is 11:00 p.m CET.
Wish I could watch this one.. grrr
As much as I like Sweden, I have to go with Finland this time.
I'm afraid we're going to lose this one, we simply don't have the offense.
The swedish scorers have looked very tame...
The finnish ones haven't looked too good either...
This agegroup sucks balls
The swedish team definitly has a chance to win this game. BUT since it's an important game that a win could mean that Sweden would reach the final round then I predict a loss. Important games are bad for the swedish psyche.
4-2 to Finland, last goal an empty netter.
also... I knew the swedish goaltending was poor... but not this poor...
They could just as long tie goldberg to the net.
This could go either way but my dirty mind tells me it'll be a 5-3 win for Finland.
I just have a hard time seeing Rask letting in more than 2 goals from the poor finishers on team sweden...
Sorry that I have to ruin this for you guys but this is the way the game goes...
13.43 Tukonen (Nokelainen,Korpikoski) PP
22.06 SÃ¶derberg (Fredriksson)
37.55 MarjamÃ¤ki (Seitsonen)
44.02 Honkaheimo (Nokelainen,Tukonen) PP
Rask FIN 26 saves
Heino-Lindberg SWE 31 saves
Penalties: SWE 7 X 2 min , FIN 6 X 2 min + 10 min
So go on...place your bets!
5-2 Finland, the last one an empty-netter
Nilsson x 2
This is assuming that Rask plays well. If not, then 4-3 Sweden. Heino-Lindberg is a pretty good goalie
He sure hasn't proved it in this tourney...
Rask has been fantastic for us so far, and I don't see Sweden's forwards doing much more damage than Germany.
4-2 for Finland.
Assuming Tukonen-Nokelainen-Korpikoski gets it's act together.
I saw the Canada-Sweden game, and you can't really blame him for most of the goals. I do agree that he does have a peculiar style, seems to rely on reflexes and luck
Sweden-Finland would be so nice to watch, but I don't think TSN will show this game though
He sure is entertaining at least sometimes very comical goals or saves
Dont think heÂ´ll be starting this game.
Why not? Do you think he messed your chances in the Canada game that bad
Heino-Lindberg has a shutout and was the best Swedish player against Canada (receiving (swe) game honours and also being named top Swede by the Swedish coaches). With that being said, I could definitely see David Rautio get to start since he recently was excellent against this Finnish team in the 4 nation u20 tournament held in Sweden little more than a month ago.
Oh come on, it was a joke
KInda sucks that both out goalies have Finnish last names, IÂ´ll bet theres some kinda setup going on :lol
Salo has proved over and over again that he will screw us Swedes over every chanse he gets ...and hes born in Finland
This is the best game of the day... Atleast closest. But of course, we wont get to see it. Both teams really need this game if they are planning on going to the second round so it should be fun to watch.
Sweden needs to have some energy, unlike the Canadian game, where most of the players were pilons. It just kills me to think they would have too poor games in a row.
I will pick Sweden, but only because they won the 4 nations cup, have the same team, but haven't played as well...
