LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- After 20 minutes here at the Herb Brooks Arena, Finland and Sweden are tied 1-1.

Finland carried the play in the early part of the first period, but Sweden took advantage of back-to-back penalties on Finland's top defense pair of Olli Maatta and Rasmus Ristolainen to score the game's first goal.

Early in the two-man advantage, Mika Zibanejad skated the puck into the Finland end and dropped a pass for Viktor Arvidsson. He ripped a shot from the left circle that zipped past the glove of Finland goalie Janne Juvonen at 8:32.

Finland had a chance 39 seconds later when Artturi Lehkonen was awarded a penalty shot after being pulled down by William Karlsson, but Sweden goalie Oscar Dansk easily stopped Lehkonen's low shot with his right pad.

The Finns did even the score in the final minute of the first period as Robert Leino banged a loose puck in the slot past Dansk with 50 seconds left.

More to come after two periods.
