from Craig Custance of the Sporting News,
On Sunday, three of the world’s best rivalries will be played in a hockey tripleheader expected to be as intense as anything in these Olympic Games. Canada plays the United States, Russia plays the Czech Republic and Finland plays Sweden.
All three are huge rivalries, and they’re also rematches of the past three Winter Olympic gold medal games.
“What’s the odds of that? I think maybe someone had something to do with that,” Sweden forward Henrik Zetterberg said with a smile. “It’s good for the fans, and it’s good for us, too. We enjoy playing against each other.”
In what was touted as the best hockey tournament ever assembled—and the tight, exciting games so far have lived up to that hype—Sunday could be the pinnacle. Or at least as big as the gold medal game.
