Swedish Wings combine for 5 points (1 G, 4A) in 7-3 win over Czechs in semi-final game. Update (8:39 PM): They'll play their Scandinavian enemies the Finns, who beat the Russians today, in the gold medal game on Sunday. That is not the matchup I was hoping for. I don't like the idea of our Swedish Wings getting involved in that particular grudge match, especially since both teams will try to do whatever it takes to win. The emotions will be even higher given what's on the line. Update (11:40 PM): Niklas Kronwall notched an assist in his first-ever Olympic game today against the Czechs and did it using one of Niclas Havelid's sticks. According to Helene St. James, Nik's equipment still hasn't made it to Torino.
