Last two U18 finals,

7-0 USA
4-3 USA in OT

Everlasting 01-03-2013 09:47 AM

Sweden will win with 4 - 3.

Carlzner 01-03-2013 09:47 AM

I'll be happy either way :D

Should be a great game.

Zip15 01-03-2013 09:47 AM

If the US can get three goals, they'll win. Just can't see Gibson giving up more than two. He's playing too well right now.

Leaf Rocket 01-03-2013 09:49 AM

I was impressed by De La rose in this game and left more curious about who he is exactly.

bottomofthefoodchain 01-03-2013 09:50 AM

Gooooooo Sweden. A repeat would be so awesome!

djf 01-03-2013 09:51 AM

Hoping Sweden takes i of course but unless USA relaxes after beating Canada and think they will win by default I don't think we'll take it :cry:

Hoping for Swedish 2-1 victory. Realistically USA takes us to school 6-2...

joe89 01-03-2013 09:53 AM

I hope we play our best game so far in the final. USA has our number.

Krishna 01-03-2013 09:54 AM

Gibson is going to win this for the US.

I've seen him shut down CHL teams many times.

He'll do it again

JFG 01-03-2013 09:57 AM

If think the first period by team Sweden was the best I've seen so far in this tournament. But USA's game against Canada is the best game so far.

It sure will be an interesting game.

Leaf Rocket 01-03-2013 10:01 AM

i want the swedes to win but gut says gibson will be a huge factor.

Systemfel 01-03-2013 10:03 AM

Poll got tight in a hurry. US led 8-2 at one point.

Lonewolfe2015 01-03-2013 10:06 AM

I think I might just have to get up early and watch this one live... would be a first time experience for me with the WJC and I can't help but feel it will be worth it win or lose. Two great teams putting everything they have left on the ice.

Go US!

Greeningfan14 01-03-2013 10:15 AM

Go Sweden!!!!

Like for example football (the real football, played with your feet), the by far biggest sport on the planet.

US deserves to be the favourite but both teams have played better as underdogs. should be a good, close game. hoping for SE win of course but cant say im particularly confident.

Gritzky98 01-03-2013 10:22 AM

Sweden will win. If they had Brodin, Klefbom, and Zibanejad in this tournament they would have destroyed every team.

Busting out the "best players aren't available" for other teams. :clap:

Add Hampus Lindholm to that. But it's a team game, maybe they wouldn't have fought so hard every shift with so many star players on the team. Sweden seem to always play better as underdogs.

Mr Writer 01-03-2013 10:27 AM

I'm going USA just because... no other reason...but Sweden got the guns to win it all. it's a toss up! Either team can take it.

Go USA.
