Sweden and Russia played a fantastic game, with both sides holding a 0-0 game that went into overtime, where this happened:
That's one of the greatest ways to win a tournament, if not the greatest! Mika Zibanejad scored the game's only goal with the helper from Patrik Nemeth. Congratulations to head coach Roger Ronnberg, and the rest of the Swedish Men's National Under 20 Ice Hockey Team. You all deserve it, and congratulations to Russia, as well. Looking forward to the 2013 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships in Ufa, Russia.
