What TV channel is Sweden vs. Finland on? Schedule, time for World Juniors 2020 bronze medal game

first_imgBut the Finns (20 goals for, 15 goals allowed) are just as capable across the ice as any of the other three semifinalist teams at the world juniors. Goaltender Justus Annunen turned in one rough performance against the Canadians (five goals allowed on 27 shots against), but he had otherwise led the whole tournament in save percentage up to that point.Here is how to catch the 2020 IIHF World Juniors bronze medal game betwen Sweden and Finland:How to watch Sweden vs. FinlandTV channel (Canada): TSNLive stream (Canada): TSN LiveTV channel (USA): NHL NetworkSweden vs. Finland: When is puck drop?Date: Sunday, Jan. 5Time: 9 a.m. ETFull World Junior Championship scheduleSATURDAY, JAN. 4Kazahkstan 4, Germany 15 a.m.TSN, NHLNSF: Sweden 4, Russia 5 (OT)9 a.m.TSN, NHLNSF: Canada 5, Finland 01 p.m.TSN 1/4/5, NHLNSUNDAY, JAN. 5Relegation: Kazahkstan vs. Germany9 a.m.TSN, NHLNBronze: Sweden vs. Finland9 a.m.TSN, NHLNGold: Canada vs. Russia1 p.m.TSN, NHLN(All times Eastern) Canada vs. Russia isn’t the only rematch of the 2020 IIHF World Juniors medal round; Sweden and Finland met in the group stage for a 3-2 game decided in overtime by a goal from Sweden’s Alexander Holtz. At the end of the tournament, the two European rivals meet again to decide who leaves the Czech Republic with a medal and who goes home empty-handed.The Swedish had seemed the class of this year’s competition — the highest scoring team (29 goals scored) and best defensive team (13 goals allowed) — before meeting their match in Russia during the semifinal round. The roster remains dangerous even without star scorer Nils Hoglander, who was ejected from Saturday’s game for a hit to the head on Russian captain Alexander Khovanov. A win, while not quite the gold medal that has evaded Swedish U-20 teams since the country last won in 2012, would be better than last year’s fifth place finish.

The ball fell nicely for me and I struck it sweetly.“Several of our players were involved in car accidents recently and another is recovering from a broken leg so we dedicate this victory to them.“Today was not about fancy football — it was about heart. All of us wore our hearts on our sleeves to grind out this victory.“We were hurting having lost to our greatest rivals (Pirates) in the league and desperately needed a victory to lift morale.”On Saturday, Baroka upset Sundowns 2-0, Pirates overcame AmaZulu 3-1 after extra time and Wits edged Maritzburg United 2-1 in the other quarter-finals.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
