Most of the goals were because a Russian player got alone in front. The goalies didn't make many huge saves, but they also got hung out to dry.

The Russian team was surprisingly scrappy. As a team they played very physically, making it difficult for Sweden to gain the zone. Sweden was soft soft soft. Rather than coming back at Russia with disciplined physical play of their own, they got upset and it completely threw off their whole game.
