Wow. Sweden scores with their goalie pulled, the puck went left post - right post - left post -- and then in!

edit: What's with these new, funky-looking buttons anyway? Don't like 'em!

Referee was ****. No call on any swedish hooks. And what a surprise...these lucky sons of ..... score a goal that hits 3 (!!!) posts before it goes in.

I really can't cope with the swedish LUCK.

I would be more angry had not Sweden grabbed at least one point in this game. Sweden had basically all the offense in the second and third period.

I was at times very impressed by the Finnish D, which I understand hasn't been that good earlier in the tourney.

imagine if Alfredsson would have scored with his shot earlier also, the one that hit the post from the blueline... and Sweden would have won with two lucky goals..
Anyway, not so good game, pretty entertaining but nothing spectacular.

Still sweden played undisciplined and unconcentrated for most of the game. I think the finns deserved to win, actually.

Riddarn,
Well if you look at their fighting spirit and work ethics than they definitely deserved it. Sweden had however twice as many shots as the Finns, twice as many scoring chances etc.
BTW, TV3 had Dick Tärnström as a top 3 in the game.. I thought he was brutal...

Sweden may have had more shots, but few really dangerous scoring chances IMHO. Finland deserved to win; although I loathe the kind of defensive play they relied on, they did it very well indeed.

And I agree, Tärnström looked bad today. But then again, so did most of the Swedes.

ZerTheHero,
Agreed, great for Noronen to bounce back after a not so good game against Slovakia. He had one really poor "play", as he just gave the puck away to Tärnström, but elsewise he looked very steady for most of the game.

Three posts? How can you score via three posts? The hockey gods think they're sooooo hilarious. The joke about Sweden tying the game is twenty years old and it Ain't Funny! *Shakes fist at the sky*

*Inhale, exhale*

Noronen makes the defense play bad. Even though he stops a truckload of shots, his shaky play translates to the defensemen's insecurity. What's more, from what I saw on the radio, his mistake and the ensuing Swedish control in the third period stuffed a tennis ball down the team's throat. Given a reason, these guys will choke.

Yeah Tärnström wasn't very good but none of the swedish defensemen were, except for maybe Hävelid. Sundin gives me a nervous breakdown everytime he's on the ice, he's a shadow of his former self (2 years ago).

I'm not sure if I like the shots-on-goal statistic as proof of who was the better team. The finnish tactic was to trap and counterattack, which they did very well. They also tried to clear the slot from swedish players and force them to shoot from the outside, and they did that fairly well too. The finns executed their game better accordingly to their gameplan and the swedes didn't. They were unlucky to let that goal in.

Oboy, I'm glad I'm not finnish. Lose a point to the swedes on a triple post in the last minute.... I would not be able to breathe normally in days.

Agree somewhat. He hasn't looked as steady as in the pre-games, but on the other hand, as long as he not let any goals go in I won't complain that much. He can, and will, be even better.

yup, inexperienced Per Hållberg outshined Sundin. Sundin was excellent last season but not nearly as good this season. Looks very slow.

One player that I thought would get some problems in this tournament is Per Hållberg (although he is a favorite of mine), but he has looked quite good so far. He is offensive but haven't been lost on counterattacks of what I've seen. He should maybe try to get the puck on goal sometimes, instead of always through it down in the boards, but overall, I'm satisfied with his play.
