Why would he risk to reinjury his groin in a game that meant zero for sweden? He is going to play vs Slovakia which means he get another game in the legs before QF.

In 2001 season, Forsberg was away from hockey in 7 months, came back in the 2nd playoff game and had 3 points and won the whole playoffs with 27p. He doesn't need to have several games in his legs to dominate. The man is born with hockey in him.
