Forever rivals Finland and Sweden will meet on Tuesday in World Cup of Hockey action.
The Finns have their backs against the wall after dropping their tournament opener to North America by a count of 4-1.
The Swedes are sitting more comfortably with a win in their opener over the Russians
The normally pesky and stingy Finns were absolutely shredded by the speedy North America team in their opener and could not find an answer to an offensive onslaught.
Sweden makes for a better matchup for Finland as they just had no answer for the speed of the young stars team and never really got a grasp on the game.
Finland has a solid group of youngsters themselves, but apart from a hard hit by Patrik Laine on North America’s Dylan Larkin, they were virtually invisible most of the night.
Pekka Rinne was shaky at times, but he can’t be blamed as he was hung out to dry on a number of occasions and really didn’t have much of a chance on any of North America’s four goals.
And in all honesty, that game could’ve been 6 or 7-1 against a lesser goalie.
What more can you say about Sweden at this point? They’re so very vanilla, but so very effective.
You know what you’re going to get from Sweden every tournament: A well-coached, organized team, with strong goaltending and a good handful of talent that can play with anyone.
The Swedes were overmatched talent-wise heading into their game against Russia, but no matter, all they did was take care of business and grind out a 2-1 victory.
Gabriel Landeskog and Victor Hedman netted goals in quick succession in the second period and the Swedes salted the game away from that point on.
Free Finland vs. Sweden Hockey Prediction
This could be a ‘who scores first wins’ game, as both teams have the ability to slow down a game and frustrate their opponent.
Sweden has the extra gear on offence with guys like Niklas Backstrom, the Sedin twins, Patric Hornqvist, Loui Eriksson and one of the NHL’s best offensive defencemen in Erik Karlsson.
The talent should overmatch Finland.
4* Free WCH Betting Pick: Sweden -245
Closer than the -245 odds would suggest, but most of that is likely coming from how badly the Finns were outplayed in their first game. Don’t expect them to be that flat again.
