Overall they had a very solid game and squeezed out a well deserved victory.
Sweden will not be an easy opponent for the Gold medal game. The Swedes as a group likely have an advantage on the big ice and obviously their goaltending will be solid as well. I think it again comes down to how defensively constricting Canada can play to limit Sweden's chances.
I think Canada can do it... but I actually anticipate a team that will be even harder to beat than this USA team.
Good summary, I think goal-tending and forwards are pretty much even. Canada still has the edge on D though. Canada had a edge in play, but, a couple breaks and the US could have easily won.
