Czech Republic vs. Sweden
Through two games, Sweden has received stellar play from goaltender Robin Lehner, who leads the tournament with a 100% save percentage, stopping all thirty shots he faced in the team’s 2-0 victory versus Russia. Sweden dominated Norway in their first game of the tournament by a 7- 1 score. They are led offensively by their top line, Anton Lander, Gabriel Landeskog, and Patrick Cehlin. This line is proving too much for some teams to handle as the trio combined for three goals and four assists in the Norway game. Sweden’s forward Cehlin has been dominant through two games and leads the team with two goals and two assists for a four point total. Sweden will need the trio to produce offensively and also need strong goaltending from Lehner to move towards the medal rounds.
