Sweden's worst game of the tournament, and the one that mattered most.
Henrik Lundquist, who seldom makes mistakes, made some big ones here on both the second and third goal by Team Europe. Mind you, on the second goal Strålman should have kept Tatar from being able to get the rebound, but still.

The coaching was the main problem though. They kept the players to a too rigid structure. Not enough improvisation. And, yeah, I know, that structured play is one of Sweden's strengths, but you have to let a player like Karlsson be Karlsson. Sweden had so much talent on the ice, and hardly made any use of it.

We should have won this game in regulation.
Too little offense too late. :evil:

And I maintain - that was definitely a kicking motion! :mad:
That goal would not have stood in the SHL.

Condolences man. I also thought it was a kicking motion BUT Sweden should never have let it go to overtime. WTF? Team Europe versus Canada? I think Europe's days of surprising people is over. Two straight.

Well, it's far enough along now that I can honestly say. I didn't get much out of this tournament.
It did not have an Olympic feel to it at all, for me.
I do recognize the money making end of it for the league.
Maybe it's just a problem with me, although I, as usual, find myself looking forward to the new NHL season.
If I had to make a guess why I didn't like it;
The two split teams made it hard for many to root for their country.
I just don't think this time of year works well anymore even though there's no other options for it.
Guess I just liked the every four year, middle of the season, Olympic break better...

The 2 pre-tournament games against USA had me glued and really looking forward to it.
Sadly every other game has sucked except the north america teams games. Sweden were pathetic in my eyes....US even more so. Canada for that matter is even a little lame to watch in that they just seem to roll over everyone with very little competition.
Bring on the nhl season and actual physical battles

I actually feel bad for 'Europe'. They really deserved that one.
Hansen had a really good game. It bodes well for the upcoming season.

So does Krueger's performance get him a new look in the NHL? It was impressive.
