Norway gave up a late third-period goal to Belarus and lost by a score of 4-3 in their final game at the World Hockey Championship in Paris on Tuesday.

Down 2-1 going into the final frame, Norway tied the score just 1:19 into the period before taking the lead 3-2 at the 3:41 mark. But with a shade under six minutes left in the game, Belarus tied it up before Yevgeni Lisovetz scored the eventual game-winner at 16:56 of the third.

Andreas Martinsen got an assist on Norway's third-period go-ahead goal, and finished the game with one shot on net and an even differential in 18:02 of playing time.

The game marked the end of the line for Norway, who were officially eliminated from the quarterfinal round after their 5-0 loss to Canada on Monday.
