    In short, Sweden has no chance at all, it'll be 95 all over again!

    Thanks, thinks looked bad in the second period, but the tieing goal seven seconds before the break propelled pretty nice little hurricane in the third!

    An amazing goal, not sure I've ever seen a player do that before. Crazy.

    It's been done a few times, but never at that level of competition. A US College player did it in a game first, and then Sidney Crosby in Major Junior. Those are the only players to have done the lacrosse-style goal in a high-level hockey game, as far as I know.

    The clip is not complete without showing the facial expression of the russian goalie right after the goal. He looked like a ton of bricks had just fallen out of nowhere right next to him.

    Granlund was simply phenomenal in these matches. I hope he won't go to waste in NHL next year.

    ...And today (hot on the heels of Finland getting destroyed five-nil in footsie the other day, but that's neither here nor there really :)), Pasi Nurminen and that other guy whatsisname, the one who didn't head-butt the trophy coming down the airplane stair, are both fined 'a substantial amount' for their rowdy, drunken behavior.

    I can't do anything else but laugh.
