Sounds like Jaskin and Lindbohm had good showings. Lundstrom also came in for the shootout for the Swedes and stopped all 3 Swiss shots to get his team the win. I found this passage pretty interesting:

Although Joel Lassinantti played the full 65 minutes of regulation and overtime, coach Roger Ronnberg went with Niklas Lundstrom for the penalty shots.

"I told the coach I wanted to go in," Lundstrom admitted after. "I like shootouts, and I think I'm good at them." He stopped all three Swiss shots.
Lundstrom must be really good at shootouts or Lassinantti really bad at them as that's a pretty odd move to put a cold goalie in just for the shootout. Congrats to Lundstrom on performing well though! Hopefully he actually gets a start soon but Lassinantti is playing quite well from what I'm hearing.
