World Juniors 2014 Game Thread: Sweden vs Russia

Bruce Bennett

The tournament favourite Swedes take on a very strong Russian team in the final round robin game for both clubs.

Two Habs prospects will be in action during this game.

2012 second round pick Sebastian Collberg is coming off a three point game versus Norway, and looks to continue his excellent play at World Junior Championship tournaments. He has 9 goals and 8 assists in 15 games played at the WJC.

The other is of course a second round draft pick from last year, Jacob de la Rose. Jacob currently has 4 points in 3 games played in this year's WJC. He constantly provides energy to the Swedes by playing a rough and tumble game. He'll be playing on a line with fellow NHL hopefuls Filip Forsberg and Elias Lindholm.

Russia, 2-1 in tournament play, is coming off a 4-1 loss to Finland. Their likely opponent in the quarter finals will be the loser of the Canada vs USA round robin game later today.
