The Ice Hockey World Cup has always been one of the high lights in my life. I remember fondly the CCCP of the 80s, the way Canada dominated the 2000s and I’m really looking forward to todays Sweden vs Finland. Finland have been playing extraordinarily and if I’d bet money on one of them it’s the fins that would get my money.
Sweden do have a good history though with gold medals 2006 and 1998, the latest medals are bronze both 2009 and 2010. Finland on the other hand haven’t won a world cup since 1995, ironically in Stockholm, Sweden.
