    This game can only have a good effect on Switzerland.

    Either they loose with a great goal difference and are provoked into a reaction so they play better in the next round,

    Or they loose after a tight match and see what they can play better than in the two previous matches,

    Or they go into overtime, and OT win being more a thing of luck than anything else and so they can say they were Sweden's equal; again something for the confidence,

    Or they actually win, which will be a great boost for the self-confidence, especially as it would be the first time in a while that SUI wins against SWE.

    This will be a close game, IMO, 2-1 to Swe.

    What a beauty by Anton Strålman, to make it 2-0.

    3-0, Sweden. The Swedes came out hot in the 2nd, scored three quick goals.
     
  12. Great fake by Hållberg to Hörnqvist for 3-0

    What'd Aebischer do to get the misconduct?

    I dunno. I missed it, and just saw that he had the 10 minutes penalty when the graphic was flashed. I'm curious, as well.

    He get tossed for it, or did he just have to kill off a 10-minute PP? Or did it have any effect on the game at all?

    5-0, Sweden. I'm starting to feel sorry for Abi. He was always inconsistent, but this past year has been brutal for him.

    A Swiss skater spent 10 minutes in the box, that's all.

    So far in the tournament, he is my favourite player on this team, no one is close really. He is such a gritty player, and he isn't afraid of releasing shots. Really solid pick by Nashville.

    Bäckström have some nice moments aswell, but he needs to play with scorers, Steen is more of a playmaker, and Emwall is just... big.

    Anyway, i must say that Thörnberg have impressed me, i didn't think he would fit in this kind of tournament, maybe i was wrong.

    Great play by Sweden so far.

    Anton is really playing nice.
    So solid and so smart, hard to believe that it's his first worlds tournament.
