1998 Swedish Olympic roster

Sweden's Olympic history:
Gold in 1994.
Silver in 1964.
Bronze in 1988, 1984, 1980, 1952.

Colorado's Peter Forsberg and Toronto's Mats Sundin are only the tip of the iceberg on this talented team.

Goaltending, goaltending, goaltending.

If the goalies step up, Sweden will fight for gold.

"Sweden will win," Sweden's Mattias Norstrom said. "I think we can upset a couple of teams. This is not a series. It's one game and how you feel for that day. There is a lot of pressure on Team Canada from back home and on Team USA from the World Cup. Those guys can't go home with bronze."
