Swedes took to the streets Sunday to celebrate winning their first Olympic hockey gold medal in 12 years. Dozens of supporters gathered at the Sergel Square in central Stockholm immediately after Sweden's 3-2 victory over arch rival Finland, braving freezing temperatures to wave the Swedish flag and chant "Olympic gold, Olympic gold." Car horns could be heard throughout the capital, with Swedish flags and hockey jerseys flying from car windows.update 1:05pm, from CBS Sportsline,
Niklas Kronwall proudly wore an Olympic gold medal he thought should have rested around someone else's neck. Ohlund, who missed the final two games after being injured in a win over Switzerland, didn't get a medal in Turin. He might receive one from his rookie replacement. "I think he deserved it more than I have," Kronwall said. "I came in and played two games. If we don't end up getting another medal, I'm offering a medal."
