Djoos goal gives Sweden 2-1 lead after two

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Christian Djoos' goal at 5:06 of the second is the difference after 40 minutes of hockey as Sweden leads Finland 2-1.

Teuvo Teravainen tied the game in the first minute of the second period. Jesper Pettersson was called for slashing Teravainen on a breakaway, and the Chicago Blackhawks prospect was awarded a penalty shot, easily beating Oscar Dansk 57 seconds into the period to tie the game.

After two periods, Sweden is outshooting Finland 21-17.

Back with more after the game.

Quote of the Day

Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
