Sweden blew out Slovenia 5-0, while Finland’s suffocating defense carried them past Russia 3-1. Sweden and Finland will face off against each other in the semifinals. I have a strong belief now that Finland will win a medal. They have a very good all-around game, and even when they are outplayed like the game against Canada, their defense and goaltending gives them a chance to win. All they need now is one victory for a medal, although preferably they would like two. Team Russia’s quest for the gold in their home country is over. They are out of medal contention.
