It's been an bit easier affair this afternoon for Sweden, who are outplaying Belarus in most aspects of the game. Outshooting their opponent 17-6, the Swedes lead 2-0 off goals by Daniel Alfredsson and Daniel Sedin. Not surprisingly, Daniel was set up by twin brother Henrik.
Sweden's speed and aggression have caught Belarus off guard a bit, as three penalties have kept them chasing the Swedes all throughout the first period.
Jonas Gustavsson, getting the start in place of Henrik Lundqvist, has been perfect thus far stopping all six shots he's faced.
