Canada completes 7-3 rout of Sweden

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Canada continued to dial up the offense against Sweden, scoring three times in the third period to turn one-goal game into a rout en route to a 7-3 victory.

A turnover deep in the Swedish zone saw the puck bounce off the skate of a Swedish player right to Frederik Gauthier, who rifled a shot past Jonas Johansson at 2:15. Just over two minutes later, another poor pass by Sweden in its own zone led to Sean Monahan scoring from the slot at 4:17 to make it 6-3.

Bo Horvat closed the scoring when he tipped an Anthony Mantha shot past Johansson at 7:36.

Things continued to be testy as the game wore on. Max Domi was assessed a pair of minor penalties and then a game misconduct for going after Sweden's Tobias Tornkvist for what Domi thought was an unnecessary hit on Connor McDavid at 13:30.

Four different scrums broke out at the final buzzer.

More from both locker rooms.

Quote of the Day

When somebody goes out and is there to score goals, but is also there to make some big hits, fight, do all of those things, and he has a great mustache, it was great to see him get that hit and get everybody going.
