Shouldn't game songs in international tournaments be more folky than pop/rock-based? This is hereby Sweden's game song for this game.

I understand the host country picking it's schedule, but why was the Canada game scheduled for 3:00pm yesterday? Wouldn't it have made more sense to schedule a North American team on prime time in North America? Especially, knowing that the winner of that game would play USA.

Oh well, what's done is done.

I hope Russia can pull this off a victory, it'll be very tough.

Actually, I was about to post about this.

I know he hasn't played since game 1, but it might make sense for Russia to put Bobkov in goal today.

I would gamble and put in Bobkov - Shikin almost lost us a game if not for Kuz. heroics, but Bragin won't do it...Mark my words - Shikin is the starter

Plus, I think Bobkov is better anyway.

It should absolutely be him.

With all respect again, David Hasselhoff isn't very Swedish, and viking helmets didn't have horns!

Now, where did you get David Hasselhoff from? This song was initially written and sung by swede Bjorn Skifs. And helmets with horns are way more hilarious than the ones without. Historical facts can go screw themselves.

Seems like we were both wrong, the song was written by a Mark James. Anyway, indian chants aren't Swedish at least.

Shikin is better than Bobkov in one area - making the first save, at least from what I have seen so far. Bobkov does have a better rebound control and can be better in other areas. He wasn't really good against Canada, and that rebound of his back goal was a killer, so I am not so sure if Bobkov is such a great upgrade as many seem to think.

I can't see a tired team Russia holding on for more than a period and a half in this game. And with Robyn Lehner in net the Russians will already be shaking in their boots going into the game.

Here's how it's going to play out: Sweden takes the early lead a couple minutes in followed by fairly even play with Russia tying things up at the 10 minute mark. About five minutes into the second Sweden regains the lead and the game remains close until Sweden score again with about 8 minutes to go in the second. This will open the floodgates and Russia can't withstand the barrage from Sweden and the rest will be a cakewalk. Final score, 8-1 Sweden.

The Swedes will go on to decisively defeat Canada in the final and capture the gold medal. Of this I am convinced. I'm fairly certain Canada will beat USA in another classic match up but either way nobody's stopping team Sweden, Canada doesn't have the goaltending and the US team is rather pedestrian compared to last year. There's only one team that could possibly beat Sweden and that is Sweden them self.

The only Swedish WJC squad that has ever impressed me more was the 2007 team in Pardubice.

I think you're absolutely right. Being down 3 to 1 and winning it in OT is not a Russian trade mark at all. This does not bode well..
