Collberg just keeps getting it done. He will never dominate play the way Galchenyuk will, but he's a sniper's sniper who is willing to defend. 4 SOG too.

On the other hand, Forsberg got 10 SOG.

Disappointed by Finland too but the Czechs have some talent, I'm happy to see the Czech talent pool starting to fill up again, although slowly.

I hate how Barkov is being used in such a primarily defensive role.

He made a big block at the end of the game there.

Yeah I saw that. Don't know if it erases the previous 59 minutes of play but still impressive.

The boxscore says he played with Teravainen today. At least to start the game.

As for Yakupov, every game I've seen him play he's like this. Just tries to score way too much and he comes off as a puck hog when really he's just trying too hard to score.

If Slovakia can manage to beat the States now - they guarantee themselves a spot (well as long as they beat Germany).

The only awesome part about USA in the Relegation Round would be that Galchenyuk could probably rack up a ton of points.

Maybe it's just the way he's playing, since I notice Barkov playing a very conservative game out there. I guess that's natural for him.

Yakupov has reminded me a lot of Ovechkin lately, but with less talent. As in tunnel vision, doing the same thing every time he gets the puck.

Barkov has not done much these first two games. He was a little better in the third period today though. Nice to see Collberg score some goals, never seen him score on a one-timer before, he has done it twice so far in Ufa.

Barkov has been okay, if anything his problem is he's playing to the system almost to a fault while his teammates are looking to get theirs. You can tell he's so much more mature than the players around him, but he needs to realize he's far too talented to constantly play it safe.

This Finnish team is missing a leader, Barkov is too young to get the respect of more individualistic players like Armia and Teravainen.

Well I don't see the USA team getting relegated this year more likely Russia.USA beats Canada and Canada beats Russia,then Russia surely can't win Gold or anything else for that matter.

Beastly one timer at 1:30. Rang another one off the post earlier, it seems.

A lot of those teams that were obsessed with picking defenders and goons are going to kick themselves...it's a crime that Tervainen and Forsberg are going to teams that are already offensive powerhouses.

Collberg vs Latvia tomorrow morning, the chance for him to put up several points.

not a chance, the way they play they may not even beat Slovakia. They play a very selfish game, take weak shots on net most of the time and cant make two tape to tape passes in a row. No team play whatsoever. They have good D and a solid G though, and that's why they were in the game VS Russia IMO.

Not impressed at all by their team, they play like those kids in NHL13 who try to dangle everyone twice.

Collberg assist. 1-0 Sweden through the first. Molin - Lindholm - Collberg is the only line that's creating any chances out there.

Stream at: http://nutjob.eu/njtvx4.html

EDIT: Now a snipe in the second to make it 2-1 Sweden. He's a monster on the PP.

He ends the game with 1+1.

You have to love that he's keeping pace with Forsberg in yet another important tournament for Sweden.
