You were watching like I said, right? Then you saw a hell of a 3-on-3 overtime, decided on a sequence that saw John Gibson stop Daniel Sedin, Johnny Gaudreau hustle to the loose puck and feed Nathan MacKinnon, who then absolutely flummoxed Henrik Lundqvist for the winner:


Holy hell.

By just getting to OT, Sweden have won their group and go to the semi-finals. Russia and Finland play tomorrow in the group’s final game. If Russia win, they’re through; if not, North America are in. [Correction: I originally wrote that Russia needs to win in regulation to advance. That’s incorrect. Any win will do.]


Let’s go Finland.
