Gold For The Sedins And Sweden At The IIHF World Hockey Championships

The Sedins waltzed home to Sweden, entered the tournament, and absolutely kicked ass, propelling the Swedes to a gold medal. How dominant were they?

Daniel Sedin scored 1 goal and 5 assists in 4 games. When asked post game what type of hockey "Swedish hockey" is, Daniel said: "boring." And then almost laughed. Dank was injured in the 3rd period when he was checked through an open gate by Swiss player Matthias Bieber. Daniel scored no points in the final game.

Henrik Sedin finished with an astounding 4 goals and 5 assists in the 4 games he played. Dominating. He scored 2 goals and had one 1 assist in the gold medal game. How sweet is this reaction:

Atta boy, Hank! Now bring some of that piss and vinegar here next season. The Sedins averaged over 22:00 per game and thrived.

Alexander Edler had 1 assist in 2 games before being suspended for kneeing Canada's Eric Staal. That suspension may go into the Sochi Olympics as well.

Here are some post game interviews, including one with Dank:

That was the first time that the home team has won gold since 1986. Crazy.
