Sweden vs The Czech Republic

Sweden started off strong against The Czech Republic. Goals by Jens Looke and Adrian Kempe gave Sweden a 2-o lead going into the second period. However if today taught us anything, it is that leads mean nothing at all. The Czech Republic came back to tie the game up. Two goals from Jakub Vrana tied the game up. Yet 27 seconds later William Nylander, that kid I told you was worth watching this tournament for, scores the eventual game winning goal. Sweden didn’t look back after that and added two more goals from Jacob de la Rose and Kempe to win 5-2 over The Czechs.
