    An amazing game took place in the WJC Final in game 3. With the Czech leading the series 2 - 0 against Sweden, Sweden was in an elimination game, trying to come back from a 2 - 0. In a match that would determine if Sweden were to have another scheduled game, Sweden played with their hearts in a game to remember. Sweden started off strong, scoring the first three goals in the game, talking a 3 to 0 lead. Late in the second, Czech scored their first goal of the game on the power play, heading to the end of the second, with Sweden leading 3 to 1. Czech's rally to overcome the 3 to 0 deficit began late in the second, scoring a late goal. In the third, momentum started wearing the red jerseys, as Czech started to control the game and scored their second goal. Minutes later, Czech, in full control of the game, scored again, tying up the game at 3. Sweden was on their heels late in the game trying to find a way to win in this elimination game. Towards the end of the third with 44 second remaining, Czech committed a penalty, allowing Sweden to play in the offensive zone. Unable to get a goal, the game went to overtime tied at 3. Sweden had the advantage of starting overtime by being on the power play. During this time Czech was trying to create some opportunities, despite being down a man. A Sweden defender turned over the puck in the defensive zone and a Czech forward took the puck, crashing towards the net. He found an open man, and passed the puck. Thinking this may be the game winning goal, Walrus had other plans. 19:19 in overtime, Walrus flashed his glove on the Czech's shot, robbing them an opportunity to win the WJC. A spectacular save, that has kept Sweden's hopes alive, will go down as one of the most clutch and amazing save of this tournament, the WJC. Walrus held on to the puck for dear life, forcing a whistle. The next face off, Sweden wins it and right as the power play was about to end, Czech committed another costly penalty. During this power play, a Sweden forward, by the name of Blackman, took the puck down the ice and facing the Czech goalie, he deked the goalie and went backhand top shelf, to secure Sweden the victory and give them hope, a chance, to win this series. Heroes were born on this day, today on the day of the eclipse, it was destined for a miracle to happen, and this may be Sweden's first steps, to overcome their toughest challenge of this tournament.

    I am appreciate the great accolades, but i must correct the record, we had a last minute switch @nibblingwalrus was goalie in game 3, he stood on his head this game and all tournament. He is the reason why we are still fighting for gold!
