Sweden 3, Finland 2

I thought about titling this post “Detroit 3, Finland 2” but decided that would be disrespectful to the Swedish team. Nonetheless, all of Sweden’s goals were scored by Red Wings: Zetterburg, Kronwall, and the game winner by Nick Lidstrom, the world’s BEST defenseman. This game was about as even as it gets. Finland had the edge for shots on goal, 28 – 27. The key difference in the game? Finland took five penalties in the second period, allowing Sweden to convert on two of their five second period power plays. And that was the essence of Sweden’s win.
This was about as good as hockey gets. What a GREAT game!
I can go to bed now…
