The Suisse play such an incredible style of hockey. It's incredible to watch.

and it's no disrespect to Sweden, it's just rooting for the underdog and the fact they can realize a perfect record. It'll be a major accomplishment for them. I suspect there's a few Swedes who are secretly cheering for the Swiss and I'm sure if the Swiss win, 95% of Swedish fans won't be too unhappy.

There is a certain speed to the Swiss team. I fully agree with Leif Boork (the Swedish expert paired with the PbP-guy) that Sweden should not try to play that fast, cool down the game and do not fall into the tempo.

Would a Swiss win today be the country's biggest international hockey accomplishment?

Have you ever heard anyone using that tactic, where 1st and 4st line guys get same minutes?

The Swiss team looks like what a team USA looks like when everything is working to a tee. That footspeed is INCREDIBLE, completely outworking and outskating every team in this tournament.

Apparently Finns were busy selling their tickets for the final to Swiss fans in beer tents.

There are plenty of Swedes who wouldn't freak out if Switzerland wins. It would be be fun to see them take the next step.

For sure.

They have no medals, let alone gold.

Doesn't matter if they win or lose, this is already their biggest achievement

Nice garbage clean-up. That's what the Swedes have to do. Crash the net.

Determined effort in that goal, but it wasn't pretty.
