    Slovakia vs. Sweden
    --------------------------------

    My prediction: 3-2 Slovakia
    Slovakia has looked good so far and I predict the Swedish players will lose their first game in the tournament today.

    This is going to be a tough game...hopefully, if Hoss is not in the ineup, Satan, Gaborik, Demitra etc., will be able to get it done. Hossa has been huge for this team so far. Lasak has also been wonderful. Tough game....I'm going with 3-2 SVK.

    Slovakia is a very good team, but Sweden have had a good tournament so far, and have been lucky several times. I think it will happen again.

    Prediction: 2-2
    Svk: Demitra, Lintner
    Swe: Salomonsson, Jönsson

    It would be freaking weird if Finland wins it 2-1 and Sweden loses 3-4. Then it will be decided on penalties who ends up second or third in the group. That's kinda crazy, should the finns wait to hit the showers after their game if they win 2-1?

    Anyhow I predict this game to end a tie 3-3.

    Bäckman, Höglund and Alfredsson

    Lintner 2 and Satan

    Sweden must not lose although I predict it will be hard. Still, I think that we could do it.

    Slovakia is hands down the best team in the tournament so far. Sweden reminds of some Finnish teams: all work, no goals. And as it has been pointed out, Slovakia must win.

    Excellent first period. Slovakia the better team in the first 10 and then Sweden took over. Jan Lasak and Henrik Lundqvist have both been great.

    What's with the ref? Only 2 minutes powerplay for Sweden and 10 for Slovakia, and even in shots.

    hehe, I think he has done a pretty good job though. The Swedish calls have been quite obvious. A bad high stick, HÃ¥llberg going after a leg etc.
    Slovaks have been hooking quite a bit, but then again the Swedes have too.

    Ugly knee-on-knee on Axelsson, though. Should've been a penalty.

    Strange, considering he had a pretty perfect view of the situation.

    Add the pre-game conspiracy theories, and the plot thickens... :eek: ;)

    Great game. Lundqvist with his first shutout, he was once again terrific. And of course Jan Lasak deserves a lot of credit as well.

    Goddamn idiots didn't even try to win.

    Give the Swedes a free ride to the medal games now. I hope to God that they lose to Latvia or whoever they're playing against. That would be something.

    Two very good goalies. Henrik Lundqvist really impress me, especially when he rob Demitra on the breakaway. This could very well be our new goalie star in the NHL, pred. :handclap:
