At the current ice hockey Euro Hockey Tour, the teams played 2 games among themselves. The Czechs won one with a score of 3: 1, and the other – the Swedes 3: 1. Who will be stronger today?
The guys Milos Riha will only conditionally be the owners of this couple, because the fight will take place in Stockholm. Six players from the Kontinental Hockey League were called up to the Czech team, the rest represent the Czech, Finnish, Swedish and Swiss championships. At the same time, this squad is quite experienced, and its average age is twenty-seven years, like their closest competitors.
“White-red-blue” knows how to beat these opponents, but in the First Channel Cup they lost – 3:1. Having missed Rasmussen from Stremvall and twice, the “lions” could only answer with a goal of Ginek Zogorn’s prestige. Naturally, it will not be easy for Czech guys in a foreign stadium, but at the last Swedish games, on Stockholm ice, they scattered opponents – 5:2 and may well repeat this next Thursday. At least, the potential of the “lions” is impressive.
Wards of Johan Garpenlev brought a powerful team to the home tournament. Eight players from the KHL and representatives of strong European championships are able to easily deal with any rivals. In addition, two experienced goalkeepers from Moscow CSKA and SKA from St. Petersburg can become the goal frame for the “yellow-blue”. There are no players under the age of twenty-four in the front line, that is, the forwards do not have experience.
There are only six defenders of the “three crowns”, so this team will try to spend the bulk of the playing time near the gates of others. In general, starting from a victorious experience in Moscow, Swedish hockey players will try to repeat the same in their native capital. The likelihood that they will succeed is quite high.
