60 minutes. Team Sweden. Erik Karlsson. That’s what stands in between Canada and another Gold Medal in Olympic hockey.
After a nail biter of a performance against the Americans Friday afternoon, Team Canada now goes for Gold in the final day of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
It will certainly be a strange and somewhat stressful experience for Sens fans as we find out what it’s like to cheer against Erik Karlsson. EK65 has been the best player for the Swedes in this tournament, registering 8 points so far. He has to be a focal point for Canada. Karlsson is always looking to jump in the rush and can chance a game with a single rush. Perhaps most importantly for Canada will be staying out of the box because there isn’t really much you can do to slow him and Daniel Alfredsson down.
Here is how Team Canada will line ‘em up for the Final.
Carey Price gets the start in goal.
GO CANADA GO!
