In what was another controversial play in Olympic hockey, the Finland team got the lead at the beginning of the game after Referee Tim Peel initially waved off the goal after a dead play whistle. Reviewing the video had a reversal of the decision and Finland lead for a short time. Battling back the Swedish offered up two more goals and ended up winning the game.
