I have to go with Sweden in this game. This is a horrible turnaround for the Russians. Played at 7:30 EST on Sunday, and now must play again at 3:30 EST on Monday. That's just a little over 15 hours between the end of the Finland game and the start of the Sweden game for the Russians.

Russia had the overall advantage in play during their round robin, but the Swedes got awesome goaltending from Lehner and won. If Sweden plays like they did against Canada, they should come out on top.

Russians shouldn't be so modest. They outplayed Sweden at times and definitely had dangerous chances. It is a uncertain game that could go either way, IMO.

Lehner needs to come up big again and some players need to step up their game one more level. It will be tight and the first goal will be huge.

I woke up today with the sickest feeling you could possibly have as a hockey fan; a CAN-RUS final...Hope I'm wrong, that Klingberg and Cehlin keep dominating like in the last game and that one of them decides it.

Well.. the russians did outplay Sweden alot of times in their last game. They just couldnt score. But they played a game 15h ago? And sweden outplayed Canada in their last game. This will be an easy game for sweden i belive.

6-1 Sweden

if lehner plays like he did against the canadians, the swedes will lose. If he plays at his best, this will be a cakewalk for the swedes. This game comes down to goaltending to me.

Sweden always have trouble with Russia for some reason.


THis is going to be a really close one, and the Ruskies are still on a high after coming back against the Finns.. I was hoping that Landeskog would be able to play in the semi's.... I don't like the odds...at all.

Will be a very tough game, for either team.
Though I guess Russia will have a hard time keeping up with Sweden through three periods. They didn't exactly play Norway yesterday.

Really hurts the integrity of the tournament that Russia has to play after so soon after a real tough OT game against the Finns. Now I'm fully aware that the host always picks the schedule and that all countries have gotten the short end of the stick at some point but it still sucks big time and should not be that way.

I can understand the host picking the schedule, but ONLY when the host changes once in a while! When its US / Canada like 5+ years in a row.. thats just ridicoulous. How often is the tournament played in Slovakia?! So they would never get to choose their schedule??

Rediculous!

indeed, I'm so tired of all these sleepless nights...
come back to Europe, WJC!

just checked wiki, and it says Canada next year, and then the 2013 tourney is in Russia

ok, hoping for a good game here and for the Russians to at least score a few. getting shut out was very frustrating.

Expect atleast a few Russian slashing, hooking, tripping, holding penalties today due to fatigue.

I believe Sweden was in the exact same situation last year...or was the year before that? It sucks, and for some reason Canada never get these screwed up schedules.
