from Shawn P. Roarke of NHL.com,
“They are pretty good when they get to back up and play five on their own blue line,” Swedish center Peter Forsberg said. “They have great guys when they get turnovers. They have a couple of the quickest guys in the world, so you can say that they played us the way they wanted to play us. It’s pretty hard when they are up; we have to go after them.
“They are not a bad team. They are a pretty good team, so we have to have some luck to beat them, but not today.”
As a result, the golden era of Swedish hockey ends.
Four years from now, if professionals are still a part of the Olympic hockey tournament, Sweden will be without many of its most famous names. Lidstrom and Forsberg won’t be back. It’s also unlikely that we will see Daniel Alfredsson or Fredrik Modin.
