The Swedes just seemed to have a particularly strong group this year and I felt that the depth of talent amongst their forwards would give them enough to outscore the US forwards. The US defensive dominance in this tournament wasn't something I really anticipated as they hadn't really shown this ability previously this year. The US team clearly peaked at the right time.
