Elias Lindholm was the lone Flame in action on Monday at the World Hockey Championship.

 

SWEDEN 5, LATVIA 4

Lindholm had one assist, three shots and 20:14 of ice time in Sweden's 5-4 win over Latvia.

The Latvians - who needed a regulation win to stay alive and earn a berth in the quarterfinals - rallied from two separate third-period deficits to pull even. Then, with the goalie pulled late in a 4-4 game, Dennis Rasmussen scored into the empty net to propel Tre Kronor to victory.
