If the US can get three goals, they'll win. Just can't see Gibson giving up more than two. He's playing too well right now.

I was impressed by De La rose in this game and left more curious about who he is exactly.

Hoping Sweden takes i of course but unless USA relaxes after beating Canada and think they will win by default I don't think we'll take it

Hoping for Swedish 2-1 victory. Realistically USA takes us to school 6-2...

Gibson is going to win this for the US.

I've seen him shut down CHL teams many times.

He'll do it again

If think the first period by team Sweden was the best I've seen so far in this tournament. But USA's game against Canada is the best game so far.

It sure will be an interesting game.

I think I might just have to get up early and watch this one live... would be a first time experience for me with the WJC and I can't help but feel it will be worth it win or lose. Two great teams putting everything they have left on the ice.

Go US!

Like for example football (the real football, played with your feet), the by far biggest sport on the planet.

US deserves to be the favourite but both teams have played better as underdogs. should be a good, close game. hoping for SE win of course but cant say im particularly confident.

Sweden will win. If they had Brodin, Klefbom, and Zibanejad in this tournament they would have destroyed every team.

Busting out the "best players aren't available" for other teams.

Add Hampus Lindholm to that. But it's a team game, maybe they wouldn't have fought so hard every shift with so many star players on the team. Sweden seem to always play better as underdogs.
