The fifth day of the 2020 World Junior Championship was a big one for a few LA Kings prospects.
Alex Turcotte (5th overall in 2019 NHL Draft) set up Cole Caufield's overtime game-winning goal to give Team USA a 4-3 win over Team Czech Republic.
It took a video review, but Arthur Kaliyev (33rd overall in 2019 NHL Draft) scored his team-leading fourth goal for Team USA.
Lucas Parik (87th overall in 2019 NHL Draft) made 39 saves for the Czech Republic in his World Juniors debut.
Fagemo Can't Be Stopped
Team Sweden continued its torrid play by defeating Team Kazakhstan, 6-2. The Swedes remain the only undefeated team in the Tournament.
Samuel Fagemo (50th overall in 2019 NHL Draft) scored the first two goals of the game for Sweden. The 19-year-old now leads the World Juniors in goals with five.
He will have another chance to add to his impressive run as Sweden faces Team Slovakia in their final game in the preliminary round at 6 a.m.
Three Teams Battle for Final Two Spots
Team USA and Team Canada have advanced in Group B, but the final two spots are up for grabs in the final day of action in the preliminary round.
The Czech Republic (four points), Germany (three points) and Russia (three points) are all still alive, but one team will be sent to the relegation round.
Team Germany faces-off against Team Russia at 6 a.m., while the host Czech Republic will take on Team Canada at 10 a.m.
