Sweden, Finland renew rivalry in hockey semifinals
Question of the Day
After the Swedes beat Slovenia to earn a spot in the Olympic semifinals, Marts said Russia would beat the Finns at a news conference.
Finland, in fact, eliminated the host Russians and will face one of its European neighbors on Friday for a spot in the gold-medal game.
The next day, Marts insisted he didn’t regret honestly responding to a query about his possible opponents that most coaches usually dodge.
“I’m not like the other ones,” Marts said after Thursday’s practice. “I had a question and I answered it. That’s my way.”
And, Marts doesn’t seem to care if he fired up the Finns.
“I can’t do anything about it,” Marts said.
No, he can’t.
“After the game,” Westerlund said with a coy smile, “he knew who won the game.”
While everyone knows how the Swedes and Finns feel about each other in Europe, fewer do in North America.
“It’s a love-hate relationship - definitely,” Kronwall said.
