Sweden beats USA White in opener

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Sweden took advantage of two more USA White penalties to earn a 4-2 win in the first day of exhibition games at the USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp.

After Tommy Vannelli was called for delay of game at 14:59, Lucas Wallmark took advantage when he took a pass from Sebastian Collberg and whipped a shot from the right side over goalie Collin Olson at 15:56.

Just over two minutes later, with Quentin Shore off for high-sticking, Oskar Sundqvist scored to make it 4-2 at 17:59.

In all Sweden had nine power plays, and scored on three of them.

Back with more from both teams.

Quote of the Day
