WINTER OLYMPICS 2022 – In a nail-biting encounter, the Russian Olympic Committee prevailed on penalties to go to the gold medal game against Sweden in men’s ice hockey.
After Vladimir Tkachyov of the ROC was sent off for slashing and Sweden’s Dennis Everberg was sent off for tripping, neither team was able to capitalize on their two-minute man advantage in the first quarter.
Though Anton Lander of Sweden tied it in the third, the ROC gained the advantage in the second thanks to Anton Slepyshev.

Overtime was needed once again in these Games, since the ROC and Sweden were evenly matched.
To decide the winner, penalty kicks were needed after Ivan Fedotov made a spectacular save with three minutes remaining to keep the ROC in the game.
There were two opportunities for Sweden to win the match in the shootout, but Ivan Fedotov’s save on Carl Klingberg’s penalty meant the teams were tied after five rounds of penalties each.
Six penalties were taken, and the score was tied at two after sudden death thanks to two additional saves.
After Sweden missed five straight shots, ROC’s Arseni Gritsyuk scored to send his team to the championship game amidst roaring cheers.
After a 2-0 win against Slovakia on Friday, they will play Finland in the championship game on Sunday.
