I was at the game. Was absolutely pathetic effort by the Russian's. They just seemed lost the entire game with the exception of the last 5 minutes. I'm officially done with this team. They don't play well individually, let alone as a team.

Oh and i looked at the tsn, boxscore and no Bertilsson anywhere. So either he hurt his shoulder again or he's a healthy scratch, not good news either way
He was playing, just wasn't noticeable. Wanted to see how he would do but he didn't do much.

And Lehner has been unbelievable for the Swedes.
Lehner was a ****ing monster. This kid is going to be absolutely insane when he breaks into the NHL. I have never seen a prospect goalie play like that. So positionally sound, quick on reflexes and lateral movement. Took up a lot of the net.

Another kid to look out for is Max Friberg. This kid is what I deem a "tenacious little *******." Hes 5'10" but plays like he is 6'3". Great center of gravity, doesn't get pushed around. Plays hard every shift and would be a great role player on any team. If you watch him, there is no way you can't not like his game. I picture him as a 3rd/4th liner, but a damn solid one.
