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

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
