Germany beat Norway, forces Game 3 in world junior hockey regulation series

MALMO, Sweden - Leon Draisaitl helped Germany force a deciding third game in the world junior hockey regulation series, scoring twice in a 4-3 victory over Norway on Friday.

The winner Saturday will remain in the elite 10-team field next year.

"We talked about wanting to be disciplined and stick with our game plan and good things will come," Draisaitl said, who had two goals for the victors. "We fought hard and tried to keep it easy."

In the semifinals Saturday, Canada will play Finland, and Russia will meet Sweden.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
