Before contributing to Sweden's 1-0 win over Switzerland on Friday morning, Capitals players Nicklas Backstrom and Marcus Johansson got a bit of a workout in on the way to the arena in Sochi. While the two could have taken a variety of different forms of transportation, they decided to ride bicycles.

Check out this photo Johansson sent out via his Twitter account on Friday:

Sweden earned the close victory with a late goal by Daniel Alfredsson and are now 2-0 in Group C play. Tomorrow they take on Latvia at 12:00 p.m. ET. Will they bike to work again? Hockey players are notoriously superstitious and they happened to win, why stop now?
