Sweden will probably head into the medal round undefeated but they haven't been too impressive this tournament.

It's kinda nice seeing the big superstars getting hit hard by no names and not being able to do much about it. It's how the game is meant to be played.

We should have brought a goon to keep our superstars safe.

I am confused, are all the games in this round to go to a shoot out? because I was able to pick a draw for the Canada- Austria game

Nice Win USA

Unless they count games that go to shootouts as draws you're getting screwed.

Swiss have played in 3 1-0 games. They are a very structured team. They are starting to develop young players too. Should be an interesting country to watch moving forward. Too bad right now Nino and Brunner are their only real threats up front.

Yeah, the shootout sucks, but from the whining you'd think this was a new thing. It is not. This didn't start because the NHL, its been there for a lot longer, since 92 if I recall, and its been perfectly fine for the players and other team members since then.
Cool story, it's still ridiculous.

Canada lost both of them.

Can medals be decided by a shootout? That's something I definitely don't like, but don't recall the rules.

Overtime is longer, but if anything else, they have to be. You can't have 4 OT games in tournaments.

I mean...if they're the final games of the tournament, why not?

Yeah, gold medal and bronze games definitely shouldn't have SOs. The possibility of Olympics medals being won or lost in a shootout is ridiculous.

Oshie basically made him look foolish the whole time. He went 4 for 6 but even the misses by Oshie were great moves. The one he missed it high but completely had Bob beat & second one he missed Bob just got a piece of his stick on it but Oshie made him really work for it.

I dont mind the shootout, I just dont think it could be decided by the two best penalty takers on both teams.

I don't think that's an Olympics thing as it is an IIHF thing. They just can't exhaust the players like that, for what really is an exhibition (they don't really get paid for international events). In a tournament, you're not adhering to the integrity of the game as you are trying to decide a winner ASAP.

Can't the World Cup end in a shoot out as well? I'm indifferent towards the shoot out in the regular season, but I can sort of see them as a necessary evil in tournaments like this.

So Swedish doctors are saying Zetterberg could be done for the year? Wow, terrible for Detroit. I'm suddenly very happy that Giroux isn't playing now....

Apparently he's been injured since December and it's only just getting to the point where he can't play through it.
