23.05.2010 Bronzegame: Sweden - Germany 3:1

Icehockey WC 2010 at Germany

Lanxess Arena, Cologne (Germany)

(Pentax k-x with Tamron SP AF 17-50mm 2.8 XR Di II LD Asp IF and Sigma AF 50-150mm 2.8 EX DC APO HSM II)

The match for third place was played by Sweden and Germany. You could observe the exertions of the Germans caused by the game against the Russians the day before and so the Swedes directly took the lead by 1:0. But the moral of the Germans was still there unbroken and so opportunity by opportunity was won and was rewarded during second period by the leveler.
Unfortunately this last only until the beginning of the third period where the Swedes again took over the lead by 2:1. Also the following run of the German national team even replacing towards the end the goalie by a 6th field player was not improving the result. Just the opposite. The Swedes could make the game safe by an empty net goal and so with a final result of 3:1 win the bronze medal.
