Berggren reacts to the brain leak: “Gorgeous guy” | Three Crowns
The Hockey World Cup is here at halftime. The teams have played most of their group stage matches and are now slowly starting to look towards the playoffs, which start on Wednesday.
On Saturday, Canada and Switzerland met in an important match for the outcome in Group B.
Then things heated up between Joe Veleno and Nino Niederreiter.
Canada forward Veleno lost his temper and stomped brusquely with his right skate over the Swiss captain’s left leg, prompting strong reactions on TSN’s broadcast.
– Oh my God! That is extremely dirty done. Terribly ugly. He knows exactly what he’s doing, exclaimed expert Mike Johnson.
Happy with his chain
Veleno was never sent off for the tackle, instead Niederreiter was sent off two minutes after starting a scuffle with Veleno shortly afterwards.
Canada made it 1-0 on their ensuing power play, but then lost the lead and lost 3-2. That means Switzerland leads Group B, which will be played in Riga.
Tre Kronor belongs to the second group, which is decided in Tampere, and later on Saturday Sweden took a comfortable victory over France.
Jonatan Berggren was again the scorer when he was noted for Tre Kronor’s 3-0 goal.
– There was a bit of luck in the power play. I tried to find “Bengan” (Lukas Bengtsson). Sometimes you get a little lucky, it was nice, says Jonatan Berggren.
He has been paired with Leo Carlsson and Lucas Raymond in two straight games. A chain that has begun to find each other more and more.
– I think we get a roll. We could get a little better payoff, we get quite a few chances. But I think we find each other, it’s fun to play with the two of them, says Jonatan Berggren about the collaboration.
Feeling for Niederreiter
Speaking of teammates, Jonatan Berggren shares a locker room with Joe Veleno on a daily basis in the Detroit Red Wings. He has not seen the Canadian’s mental breakdown before Expressen shows him the television images from the match in Riga.
– I don’t have much to say. He’s a really nice guy, so I don’t know.. A lot can happen when there’s a fight, that’s all.
How often does this happen in hockey?
– Oh, I don’t know that. It hasn’t happened to me yet. I hope that doesn’t happen to me. It’s a martial art so much can happen, but hopefully it went well for the other guy, says Berggren.
Tre Kronor has five straight victories in the hockey World Cup. Now Denmark and the USA await at the beginning of next week, after which the playoffs begin, for which Sweden is qualified after the victory over France.
