Not the first time it has happened, not the last. Elimination games are very different from league/playoff games. 1 strike and you're out, teams like Sweden has been able to come through (without much of a team on paper) more than once. It is not coincidental.
By the way, who cares about Sweden, Switzerland beat Sweden, Canada, Czech Rep and the in elimination games Czech Rep and USA. They were the worse team every single day, but the found a way to win. The beauty of these tournaments is that some(/many)times math/stats/names goes out the door and energy, will and strategy wins.
