Why does Par Marts hate Ekman-Larsson?? I'm cheering for Canada, but it doesn't make sense to sit an elite offensive guy on the bench while you continue to give E, Oduya and Edler top minutes when all there doing is turning over the puck. Can't wait for the game to end, cheer and be happy for Canada and then go back to hating Toews, Crosby, Perry, etc. :hehe:

add Z Backstrom and Sedin and the game would be different. in the end the Swedish D is a poor 2 to the Nucks blueline corps.

Everyone has injuries. This game could be different if Canada had Tavares, Giroux and Stamkos. Depth accounts for something.

SOCHI, Russia – Sweden’s star center Nicklas Backstrom wasn’t allowed to play in the gold medal game against Canada after testing positive for a banned substance.

An NHLPA source tells Yahoo Sports that Backstrom violated anti-doping rules after using an allergy medication. Some, like Claritin, contain pseudoephedrine, a banned substance by the IOC and the World Anti-Doping Federation

The source said he was pulled from the locker room before Sweden's pregame skate, after being announced in the starting lineup. The source indicated he was tested on Friday.

It was reported before the game that Backstrom, who plays for the Washington Capitals, would miss the gold medal match with a migraine, after he didn’t appear in the warmup.

Backstrom is Sweden’s top line center, with four assists in five games.

Too funny.
