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

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
