Hornqvist Scores Again, Sweden Rolls in Day 4 of World Championships

by Jay Levin / Nashville Predators
Patric Hornqvist and Ville Koistinen recorded points on Day 4 of the 2008 World Championships, as Preds players continued their solid performances in this year's tournament. Through the first four days (two games per team), six of the eight Predators players have recorded at least one point in the tournament.


Hornqvist netted the game's second goal, a power-play tally 4:21 into the second period, in Team Sweden's 9-0 win over France. Sweden improved to 2-0 on the tournament and secured a spot in the Qualifying Round. Hornqvist has three goals in the first two games, tied for second in the tournament in goals, while his 15 shots on goal lead the tournament.

Koistinen recorded an assist on the game's opening goal in Finland's 3-2 overtime win against Norway, Koistinen's first point of the tournament. Fellow Preds Janne Niskala and Antti Pihlstrom both saw action in the game, but were held off the scoresheet. With the overtime points, Finland secured a spot in the Qualifying Round.
