A Rangers Blogger Previews Sweden vs. Germany

Nicholas from Rangers Tribune is lucky enough to be in Vancouver for the Winter Olympics and as such, has been blogging and tweeting his experiences.

Here is a bit of what he has to say regarding the Sweden vs. Germany matchup, featuring Rangers’ netminder Henrik Lundqvist:

New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist will lead Team Sweden into the tournament this afternoon when they take on Team Germany at Canada Hockey Place. The Swedish, as I have stated, is one of the more well rounded clubs in this tournament and I am looking forward to watching them live today. While I am not expecting a total blowout like we saw on Tuesday in the Canada game and the Russia game, I do think Sweden will come out of this one with a victory and three points in the standings.

While the team is well rounded, their strength has to be defense and goaltending. Us Rangers fans know more than anyone about how netminder Henrik Lundqvist gives you a chance to win night in and night out. Henrik was a main reason Sweden won Gold in Torino in 2006, and will again be a major reason if they defend that title this time around in Vancouver. Plus Hank has been red hot for the Blueshirts heading into the tournament so you would assume we would be seeing more of the same on the rink today.
