So regulation win over Sweden and Finland finishes first in the group no matter what happens in the other game.

Have people seen Sweden actually play or why do some people think that we are huge underdogs? Our roster seems at least as strong as the Swede's and it took a shootout for Sweden also to beat SUI. The Czech game is the only difference.

If that win doesn't wake this team up then nothing will. Did you notice how they celebrated the victory? Interesting game tomorrow also because now we've played against the trap teams and it's pretty safe to say that the rest of the games will be against completely different style opponents.
I think people think we're underdogs out of old habit. There shouldn't be much difference material-wise, and neither have showed anything special yet. Goalies of both teams have been solid. Either one can take it. Would be interesting to see what kind of odds some betting sites are laying for each team.

edit: bet365 is giving a multiplier of 1.45 for Sweden and 2.4 for Finland. I was expecting more even odds.
