Great game for the gold medal game. Finland and Sweden played their hearts out for their countries!!!
Although both teams were drained by the amount of games they played in a very short period, both teams come out and played like champions. If the SCF can be played like this, hockey is on its way back.
Nice performance too by the Detroit Swedes. All three goals for Sweden by Wings!
Recap of the game from the IIHF

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.

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."
