He's really an awesome goalie.
Lehner wasn't great, but he also had some bad bounces that may have affected his play in the Canada game. Campbell has been the most consistent, but I wouldn't say U.S.A. has the best.
Sweden outworked Canada the majority of that game, however I do agree with you about discipline. That will heavily affect who takes this one home. All the top-team's PP units have been moving the puck pretty well, and are dangerous.
I can't really decide whom I like for their defense. All of the teams have had some gaffes by their d-core that ended up in goals against. Good offenses score goals in spite of good defenses not because of them.
We'll see what happens I guess, but if I had to bet on a team right now, I think I would be most confident in Sweden. I hope I am wrong and the U.S. destroys them and/or Canada.
