The Swedish men's team suffered an early setback when it lost 5-0 to Russia, but wins over Kazakhstan, Latvia and the United States meant that the team was guaranteed a quarterfinal spot entering the final round-robin game with Slovakia. This game stirred up controversy, with head coach Bengt-Åke Gustafsson suggesting that the team might not play for a win, in order to set-up a quarterfinal matchup with underdog Switzerland. Ultimately, the Swedes did lose the game, though the IIHF supervisor "didn't see anything special".[12] The team then picked up comfortable wins in the medal round, beating the Swiss 5-2 and the Czech Republic 7-3, setting up a gold medal final with local rivals Finland.[13] The Swedes fell behind after the first period, but a pair of goals in the second left the game tied going into the final 20 minutes. Nicklas Lidström then scored early in the third, giving the Swedes a 3-2 lead that would hold, and giving the country its first Olympic hockey title since 1994.[14] Thousands of fans greeted the victorious team upon their return from Turin, with many of the NHL players stopping in Stockholm before returning to their club teams.
