The fact that Sweden COULD have brought 9 is completely irrelevant and bringing up the quarterfinal is quite stupid considering its not how you get to the gold medal game, it's that you persevere and make it there. And did you forget that the Russian team went up 6 goals in the semis against a very strong Canadian team?
