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

I think when you build a team, you look at pairs, and I think the pair of [Voracek and Giroux] is very good, certainly one of the top pairs in the League.
