Team Europe's ascension to the best-of-three final that commences Tuesday is shocking, but perhaps no more so than Sweden's passive nature throughout this tournament in which Tre Kronor scored a sum of nine goals in four games and only pressed the issue when presented with no other option, like when they fell into a 3-1 hole against North America in the round-robin and when they trailed Europe 2-1 throughout much of the third period Sunday.
