Sweden holds off USA Blue for 4-3 victory

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- USA Blue made a strong push late for the tying goal, but Sweden was able to escape with a 4-3 win Monday at Herb Brooks Arena.

Alexander Wennberg gave Sweden a 4-2 lead with a shot from the slot that rocketed off the crossbar, dropped behind goalie Anthony Stolarz and dribbled across the goal line at 10:13. After a replay review, the goal counted.

USA Blue got within one on a nice individual effort by Vincent Hinostroza. The Chicago Blackhawks prospect carried the puck down low in the Sweden end, beat two Swedish players in a battle along the end boards, went behind the net and fed the puck to Will Butcher above the left circle. His shot beat goalie Marcus Hogberg at 17:43 to make it 4-3.

With Stolarz pulled for an extra attacker USA Blue ratcheted up the pressure. The best chance came when Daniel O'Regan got loose on the rush down the left side, but his shot went just off the outside of the net with 28 seconds left.

Back with more from both locker rooms.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
