Yeah, mine crashed too. Can´t afford to lose two forwards behind the net on the forecheck, gives the USA players room to put up speed in the NZ.

Bad goal by Lundstrom but Bengtsson's sloppy play behind the net led to that pressure. 3-1 US.

And now seemingly an own goal, bounced on a leg or so. Solid play by Galchenyuk though..

Yep, this is getting ugly. Lundstrom has to have that one aswell. If Dansk wasn't injured we would've seen a goalie switch here.

Reminds me of the U18 final. Sweden playing sloppy, USA cashing in on everything. Suspect goaltending.

7-1.. Game could've easily been 10-3 and the second is not even over. Defense, there is none.

Yeah, the goalie is not stopping anything and there is no defense, none. They often seem to find a 5 minute period against us where they score on everything they put on net.

We had a couple of brilliant chances when the score was 6-1, should've made it 6-3. But that's just how this game is going. Tough on Lundstrom who hasn't been good but can't get replaced. I still think Lindholm has been pretty good for us, offensively Forsberg has looked good but Karlsson is not having a great game.

And make it with 10. Had to happen. Game was fairly even in period 1 and 3, total blowout in the second. Terrible game by Lundstrom. Work ethic and skating wasn't the best, maybe a bit tired but that's no excuse. No need to single out players, total team loss.

40 games without a regulation loss and boom! 10-2 USA. Good thing it happened now and hopefully it won't happen again in January. USA seem to be the nightmare opponent for us these days. Total team loss as mentioned but a better goalie could have cut their goals in half.

How bad was Karlsson? Did Lindholm cause any of the goals?

I have no idea. Annually, on a player by player basis, you could make the case that Sweden is more talented.

Beat them in January and all this will be nothing but a bad memory.

Bounce back and win, can't ask for more. Still a great camp, they beat themselves more than anything yesterday. A few bumps on the road won't hurt.

Sorry for bringing it up, but i've noticed that you swedes always brag about winning Finland over in any sports events and Finns just shuts it, but when Finland wins over Sweden you go full of emo something like: 'you guys suck never even won Olympics, this was just pure luck and referees was on your side'. So, do you honestly have that low self-esteem which you have to boost by something you even haven't done by yourself?

Do I see anyone bragging here?

I also see you whined about the refs quite a bit during the U18 Semi final against Sweden
