    Canada vs. Sweden

    My prediction: 2-1 Canada

    I predict a tight and low scoring game which Canada will win with a late goal in the third period. Heatley, Cooke | Lidström

    3-2 Canada as last year. Canadians are usually better in a final.

    it's 8:15pm CET, so it's 2:15pm EST, so it's 15 minutes after noon mountain time. i hope i'm right. :)

    my prediction is 4-3 sweden in OT, at least that's what i hope for.

    SVERIGE!!!

    3-1 Sweden. Canada always plays well in finals, but Sweden have had the margins by their side throughout the whole tournament, and hopefully it will continue. Will be, as all games lately, a great game.

    Prediciton: 3-1 Sweden.
    Forsberg 2, Hedström - Heatly

    Sweden wins 2-1 by scoring with 3:27 left in the third when Forsberg tries a wraparound that Luongo stops but inadvertently bats the rebound right to Salamonsson who buries it.

    Meanwhile, in section 3, row 14, a spectator mulls his stock options while his wife complains about something in her beer.

    I don't know how many "stars" we have..Niedermayer strikes me as the only one. :) The rest either haven't been asked, injured or in the playoffs.

    Anyways I'm gonna go out and say 3-1 Canada. Luongo will be outstanding. He has a tendency to step it up during important games.

    Well, Canada does have a guy nominated for Norris on D, a guy nominated for Vezina in G, Dany Heatley, and some other good NHL players, if not always spectacular ones, so I'd say there's still an awful lot of talent, and stars, on the Canada roster.

    Have the same feeling I did before the Slovakia game. Impending doom :) We all saw how that turned out, so :dunno:
