UFA, Russia - Markus Granlund scored twice in regulation and added the shootout winner Sunday as Finland defeated Switzerland 5-4 at the world junior hockey championship.
Switzerland then went up 4-2 in the third on goals by Alessio Bertaggia and Dario Simion, but Teravainen scored again and Granlund sent the game into overtime with a goal with less than two minutes left in regulation.
Joonas Korpisalo stopped 19 shots to get the win, while Melvin Nyffeler made 53 saves in taking the loss.
"It was a great battle for us," Korpisalo said. "The first period was pretty horrible, but after that we tied the game and were much better."
The Finns are now second in Pool B ahead of Switzerland with five points. The Swiss have earned points in all three games and also have five points, but are seeded third by virtue of Sunday's loss.
