On-site reinforcements:
Since the Finland game, Sweden has had two days off and two other NHL players have been added – goalkeeper Linus Olmark, Boston, and defender Markus Peterson, Pittsburgh. In addition, Lucas Wallmark Center is in good health after food poisoning and playing against the United States. William Nylander goes down on Saturday and misses the game.

food poisoning:
Lucas Woolmark is back after missing the last two games.
– It must have been a bad chicken or something, he says.
– You weren’t the strongest. It might not normally be, but it wasn’t fun.

Olmark exclusive interview:
Linus Ullmark is in place in WC and ready to play. It might be his first encounter against his teammate Jeremy Swayman. The two Boston Bruins’ classic goalkeeper friends have a special relationship. The biggest thing for them became the bear hug they distributed to each other after matches. It quickly became a viral success in the United States which was picked up by others.
Our relationship is built on love, respect and friendship, but tomorrow it will only be respect, said the 28-year-old before meeting with the United States.

Sweden is practically ready for play-off matches after losing last year, but not in theory. But with 11 points, a complete victory over the United States would guarantee play-offs. The United States is in third place with eight points. The top four teams from the group advance to the quarter-finals.

directly damaged:
The United States brought in veteran Minnesota defender John Merrill for the final game – but he played more than a minute before a slap in the hand prevented him from the rest of the game. It is not clear if he will play against Sweden. In addition, the team is still waiting for three NHL reinforcements, including striker Ryan Hartman, of Minnesota. Even there, there are question marks for the matches against Sweden.
