LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Goals by Jakob Lilja and Rasmus Bengtsson have given Sweden a 2-0 lead after one period here at Herb Brooks Arena.
Lilja got the scoring going when he banged in the rebound of a shot by Jeremy Boyce Rotevall 4:36 into the game.
Later in the period, with Sweden on its first power play of the game, Bengtsson's shot from the blue line went through traffic deflected straight down off the crossbar and over the goal line at 16:15.
Finland had chances to get on the board, but it's anemic power play continues to hurt it. They went 0-for-2 in the period, and now are 0-for-13 in their week in Lake Placid.
Back with more after the second period.
