LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Finland's Juuso Ikonen scored the only goal of the third period, but that was all it could get as Sweden finished its time in Lake Placid with a 5-2 win.

Carolina Hurricanes prospect Victor Rask had a goal and an assist, and Jakob Lilja, Rasmus Bengtsson, Oscar Klefbom and William Karlsson each added a goal. Goalie Niklas Lundstrom made 38 saves.

Janne Juvonen, who gave up all eight goals in Sweden's 8-2 win against Finland on Tuesday, stopped 11 shots after starting the third period in goal.

More from both locker rooms in a bit.
