You must win a match against Great Britain.
Then Trey Kronor ended up at an immediate disadvantage – after a deeply questionable judgment.
He finds nothing in the rulebook he should be able to agree to, says Chris Harnstam and points out to judges in Sweden.
Sweden had a terrible start to this year’s World Cup, and after losing two of their first three matches – against Denmark and Belarus – Sweden will have a tough time making it to the finals this year. Winning is required in all three remaining matches, but strong opposition, especially in Russia, is waiting for you.
However, many counted on three clear points in the Great Britain meeting on Friday afternoon, but they are talking about showers straight from Sweden. Right at the front of the match, Great Britain (!) led with a score of 1-0, but it was already talked about.
The British striker ended up in a duel against NHL star Rickard Räckel, then slipped past Swedish goalkeeper Victor Fast – at the same time as a puck shot towards goal. Fast was run over by the British player, while the puck crossed the finish line. After much deliberation, the case was approved, to my astonishment.
– It’s so amazing. I was absolutely convinced that it was a cross-talk. a stranger. But what a cold shower! , says SVT expert, Jonas Anderson.
“Not being able to become a target”
Chris Harnstam, who commented on the match, says the Swedish referees texted him about his thoughts. And they seem to agree.
It should not be possible to become a target. I find nothing in the rulebook he should be able to agree to, says Harrenstam.
Härenstam also told a moment later that he had received a text message from the Swedish Hockey Association’s referee, Joel Hansson.
– You can claim the Swede is the one taking him down, but then the fall should also try to avoid contact with the goalkeeper – which he doesn’t, says Härenstam who says Hansson.
Five minutes before the end of the period, Sweden tied 1-1 through Markus Sorensen.
