Elias Lindholm is a freakin' beast. Plays like a veteran in an NHL playoff game. If that makes sense

Wikstrand and Lindholm were Sweden's best players out there in the first.

I wish everyone was healthy for Sweden's back-end. It would have made Sweden phenomenal defensively. Wikstrand is their number 1 I'm assuming? To think he'd be the 4th best defender with Klefbolm, Brodin and Lindholm healthy would have been a treat to see the depth.

Ahahaha. Well my attention would perk up every time Rakell and Karlsson would hit the ice in hopes that they'd score but they can't even get the puck because Forsberg loses it every time he touches it.

Yes, i never really understood the hype he got last year. Great attitude and always willing to give his best but jesus christ hes giving the puck away atleast one time every shift. Also trying fancy stuff and blindpasses.

Vikstrand with double assists. Looking good out there even though we lost four defensemen. No problem with that, just time for the other guys to step their game up.

Czech is better than ever and a 2 goal lead is very nice atm. Just look at their roster with Vrana,Jaskin,Hertl,Musil and Frk. World class prospects.

Rakell looks really strong on the puck.

I predict Karlsson will continue to look rather invisible on that line the way Rakell and Forsberg dangles and hogs the puck. Honestly, they might aswell put Rask on that line and play Karlsson with others to spread the scoring threats around.

Forsberg will wake up. He's just trying to do too much, nerves and especially with that C on his chest. He'll get it together, just you wait.

Don't really understand the Forsberg-hate, is it because he's a firstrounder? Maybe I've missed the hype surrounding him or something, but it doesn't change the fact that he's one of our best players.

We need a D to step up though, no confidence whatsoever...

I don't hate Forsberg. He's one of my favorite prospects. I just know he's better than this. This is pretty much garbage from him.

You can tell Forsberg has very high end ability. Of course he's been very inefficient (still fun to watch), but the ability is there. Always thought the same about Rakell when i see him ; very good hands, but sometimes can be a turnover machine and does too much.

Czechs puck moving ability on the back end looks dreadful. You can see the difference in the teams ability on the puck. Sweden can handle it in their own zone and can basically break into the offensive zone every time. Czechs can do niether apparently.

Nice little play from Victor Rask.

EDIT: Brutal D on the next shift. Djoos and Bengston.
