    This one could go either way. Since I am a Finn I'll go for 5-4 Finland.

    Joensuu, Tukonen, Makkonen x2 and Korpikoski for Finland.
    Salmonsson x2, Persson and Svanberg for Sweden.

    I hope the teams are interested in playing for the 5th position. Then again, Sweden almost always brings out the best in Finns, regardless of game importance.

    I didn't even know they were going to play this game, it's just so unnecessary. And of course they're not even broadcasting it, great. I just don't know... I hope Joensuu plays a good game and gets a goal or two. Definitely my favourite player from this Team Finland. I don't mind losing to Swedes since we've already played better tournament than expected, but it would be nice to end this thing with a win.

    It's not that pointless. Finishing 5th will give you a better Group next year than finishing 6th, or so someone told me.

    If that's not true, then it is pointless.

    Finland will win. Can Sweden compete with a team packed with talent such as Tukonen, Nokelainen, Korpikoski and Joensuu?

    No, everybody realizes that this is an impossible task for a third tier hockey nation such as Sweden. Hopefully their coach has realized it too and has instructed the Swedes to do everything they can to trap, cluch & grap and bore the Finns to death in order to keep the numbers down.

    Finland will win by at least a 5 goal margin!

    Wasn't it a third WORLD hockey nation? I think it has a better sound to it. :D

    Ok, but what is that better group excatly? I don't think it really makes a difference which of the top countries we have to face. They could roll a dice or something.

    True, considering the medal rounds. However considering the difference between placing 5th-6th or going through the relegation can depend greatly on the group.

    I hope finland loses, so that if Canada wins the gold, they won't be in the same group as finland next year. ;)

    Things are looking grim, I don't think there is anything else but the IIHF site :(

    Korhonen takes way too many penalties. Pretty much every time he's on ice.

    Soderberg scores! Assist to Salmonsson :)handclap: ) and Eriksson!

    It says SH2... Don't really know what that means. The time leads you to believe it was even strength, and since there were assists, it wasn't a penalty shot or anything. :dunno:

    Pretty strange in that case, because in that case they would have had 3 forwards on ice in a 5-on-3 PP. Not very likely ;)

    Yeah, but the IIHF site said SH2, with no record of any penalties at all.
