Sweden's gonna take it. Russia will lose to Canada for sure.
Ekholm player of the game!
Assist on Nilsson
Ekholm showing why he's an elite NHL defenseman. Too bad we only have 5.
Impressive 200 ft shot straight in the middle of the net.
Impressive that they managed to stay cold and turn the game around after that start
I was close enough.
Congratulations Sweden! Sweden and Finland as the group winners, interesting.
First win in like 13 games against our worst team
in a long time. Good job!
We beat the refs & russia!
What a game! I understand the last period was boring to watch as anything but a Swedish fan, but that was a beauty as Swedish fan.
That was how you defend the lead. You don't turtle, you just continue to fight for every inch/ cm of the ice. You get some chances and you're not caught in your zone nearly as much as in a turtle. Very impressive watching 3 world class lines and 2½ world class bluelines defend a lead.
Thanks, enjoy Canada.
Russia - Canada is gonna be an amazing qf!
On paper, Canada should win but they haven’t been too impressive, we have our chance.
Finland will lose to Swiss for sure)
First win against Russia in whc/olympics since 2004 (I don't count 2016 Donald Duck Cup). I have high expectations on this team going forward.
It’s ok, we either defeat the dragon or vanish in the dark.
We weren’t even top 4 favorites anyway.
Not really, our team is garbage this year. Pretty sure Russia beats us probably by a decent margin.
My prediction? It will be Sweden - Finland in the gold medal game. Sweden wins with a close margin, because it's Suomi (even if their team is inferior, they don't care) and their fans know the soul of kalsarikännit. My favourite Finnish word, because northern Sweden is actually closer to Finnish mentality than Swedish, but I still cheer for Sweden. Even if we have little in common with southern Swedes, relatively speaking.
Good game by Sweden, the Russians is also good and its tough to score on them, so I am happy of the result.
Some history has been made, both interesting and somewhat sentimental. One of the few histories have broken and will reset, Swedish coach Gronborg is the guy to make them both (if you count the 2016 WC).
The Sweden vs. Russia era of 2005-2017 will stay close just like that.
Nope. Russia have "С" team in this year.
Canada is likely done in the QF, its one of our most underwhelming Canadian entries I've ever seen at this tournament thus far. Such a drastic change from the past 3 years. Enjoy the semifinal Russia.
