Canada fights back to beat Sweden at worlds

ProHockeyTalk

Patrick Wiercioch tied it and Tyler Ennis scored the winner, as Canada fought back to defeat Sweden, 6-4, today at the world hockey championship in Prague.

Canada improved to 4-0-0 with the victory, while Sweden suffered its first loss of group play.

The Swedes got off to a dream start, opening a 3-0 lead in the first period. But Canada tied it with three straight of their own in the second, before the Swedes took a 4-3 lead into the third.

In the final frame, Canada’s dangerous attack just couldn’t be contained. Weircioch scored at 10:24 on a pass from Sidney Crosby. Then, less than three minutes later, on a Canadian power play, Ennis beat Anders Nilsson high on the glove side to make it 5-4.

Tyler Seguin would add an empty-netter.

Canada’s next game is Saturday versus France. Sweden takes on Germany tomorrow.
