Swiss Women’s Team Beats Sweden In Consolation Game For First Ice Hockey Medal Since WWII

A proud day for Switzerland ice hockey, as the women’s squad bested the Swedes 4-3 on a Jessica Lutz put back with 6:17 left to play (Lutz knocked Russia out in the quarterfinals in similar fashion). The last time anyone saw the Swiss medal in “Ice Hockey” as it’s redundantly referred to, was at the 1948 Winter Games in, get this — St. Moritz, Switzerland. Sweden is currently looking to redeem itself against the Canadian curling juggernaut in the Gold medal game, where they’re currently tied at three through eight whatchamacallits (periods? rounds? games? sets?).
