Another follow up – sounds like they are being careful.
It wasn't a totally clean night for the Swedes. Patric Hornqvist left the game late in the second period after he got elbowed hard in the face by Joni Pitkanen. Hornqvist had to be helped off the ice and he didn't return, but neither did Pitkanen.
The Finnish defenseman received a five-minute major for checking to the head and neck area and a game misconduct. As a result of the game misconduct, he is suspended for Finland's quarterfinal-round game.
Hornqvist is also questionable, Sweden coach Bengt-Ake Gustafsson said.
"He's got to go through some medical things (Monday)," Gustafsson said. "He's not in too bad shape, but if we played (Monday) he wouldn't be able to play. But, we have two days."
