Tornkvist goal puts Sweden ahead of U.S. after first

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Tobias Tornkvist, one of the top Swedish players eligible for the 2014 NHL Draft, scored the lone goal of the first period as Sweden took a 1-0 lead against the United States after one period here at Herb Brooks Arena.

Sweden out-shot the U.S. 13-7.

Each team had chances on its power play, but the American penalty killing was better than in previous split-squad games against Sweden. The U.S. killed both Sweden chances, including a hooking call on Stefan Matteau 20 seconds after Tornkvist's goal.

Back with more after the second period.

Quote of the Day

They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.
