I was at the game.
First, I overheard a conversation between a scout and a very well known Swedish coach. The coach said realistically we can hope for third place in the group as the US and Russia are too good. Will be interesting to hear his comments in the media after the tournament.
Second, TV4 is sending a reporter to the tournament. So we will at least get highlights.
Third, I was impressed by Loui Eriksson. I think he has potential to become a very good player.
Fourth, It seemed Sweden played with only one line. It could have been three lines but never four. I didn't see Eckerblom on the ice even once.
Fifth, Lundström played very well. The problem with him is if he can keep up this level during a full tournament. Question marks for that.
