Sweden leads Finland after 20 minutes

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Sweden took a 1-0 lead against Finland after 20 minutes in the final game of the national junior evaluation camp this week.

With Finland's Aleksi Mustonen in the box for interference, Jacob de la Rose, a Montreal Canadiens prospect, scored off a pass from Filip Sandberg at 12:48 of the period.

Sweden sustained the lead despite having to kill off two penalties, including a slashing call on goalie Oscar Dansk.

Back with more after the second period.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
