Sweden Form

Sweden go into the quarter-finals of the World Championship having won six of their seven games in Finland so far.

The Swedes kicked off their campaign with a 3-1 win against Austria and built on that with a 5-3 victory against the Czech Republic.

A 6-0 blowout of Great Britain took their record to 3-0, and they then knocked off tournament hosts Finland via a shootout.

Sweden’s streak was then halted by a 3-2 overtime loss to the United States, but their response was an emphatic one.

They smashed Norway 7-1 and then concluded the group stage with a 1-0 win over Latvia.

Canada Form

Canada won six of their seven group games to reach the knockout stage of the World Championship.

The defending champions opened with a 5-3 win against Germany and followed it up with a 6-1 demolition of Italy and 5-1 rout of Slovakia.

They then battled back twice in the first period to beat Kazakhstan 6-3, before also beating Switzerland 6-3.

The Maple Leafs’ unbeaten run finally came to an end in their fifth outing as they suffered a 3-2 defeat to Denmark.

The Canadians bounced back in their final group game though, easing to a 7-1 win against France.
