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

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
