Sweden leads Finland 5-1 after two periods

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Sweden extended its lead over Finland in the second period, scoring three times to take a 5-1 lead after 40 minutes.

Victor Rask started the scoring when he finished off a nice cycle play with linemates Jeremy Boyce Rotevall and Viktor Arvidsson nine minutes into the period.

Oscar Klefbom rocketed a shot from just above the right circle during a two-man advantage to make it 4-0 at 11:23.

Finland finally got on the board when Robert Leino got in front of the net and tipped a Rasmus Ristolainen shot for a power-play goal at 15:24, but the momentum lasted just 30 seconds, as William Karlsson scored at 15:54 to make it 5-1.

Back with more after the final whistle.
