Backstrom, Johansson bike to game against Switzerland…together

  • Michael Prosser

Friends, teammates, countrymen (no you don’t have to lend me your ears); these are just a few words to describe both Nicklas Backstrom and Marcus Johansson. What’s one word that’s missing from this Shakespearean-esque quotation? Bromance.

Yes I know it’s not in the traditional English language but it perfectly describes what the two Swedes did today on their way to their match against the Swiss, a game which saw the Tre Kronor need a late Daniel Alfredsson goal to survive Calgary Flames goalie Reto Berra and the Swiss National Team, who needed a late goal of their own against the Latvians two days ago.

Backstrom and Johansson both dressed in full suit and tie, Justin Timberlake style, and rode bicycles to the Bolshoy Ice Dome. No word on whether or not they had Lady GaGa’s Bad “Bro”mance playing while they rode. Both players were held scoreless; the second straight game for Johansson.
