Swedish Hockey Just Scrapes By Belarus

Published lördag 20 februari 2010 kl 11.05
Swedes celebrating their first goal against Belarus.

Breaking the curse of the 2002 Salt Lake City games, the Swedish hockey team beat Belarus 4-2 in the Vancouver Olympics on Friday. But the game, a revenge for the Swedish team’s humiliating loss against the country eight years ago, offered its own nerve-wracking moments.

The defending Olympic champions led 3-0 after two periods of play, but Belarus quickly scored twice in three minutes, transforming a comfortable lead into a very insecure edge. Both teams began playing frenetically in the third period, and Belarus was just centimeters away from tying it up.

Finally, Daniel Alfredsson of Sweden secured Sweden’s 4-2 win with nine seconds to go.

The win gives Sweden two victories under its belt as it sets off to face Nordic rivals Finland on Sunday.
