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 very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
