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

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.

— Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice on Mathieu Perreault, who scored two goals in win against Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday
