After an early cold shower and a 0-1 deficit, Sweden took over the match and eventually the goals came.
With two minutes left in the first period, Linus Johansson stood for a solo number and set a rock-solid 1-1 in front of the jubilant Karlstad crowd. It would only take about a minute before it was time again.
Lucas Wallmark and Marcus Sörensen worked their way forward and served Marcus Sylvegård a brilliant position right in front of the goal. The 24-year-old made no mistakes and gave Sweden the lead.
In the last period, Jacob de la Rose and Victor Ejdsell extended the Swedish lead and after 4-1, Sweden has had a good start in the Beijer Hockey Games.
– As time goes on, we take over more and more, says Victor Ejdsell.
Sweden, who won the last edition of the tournament, will play their next match on Saturday. Then Switzerland stands for the resistance. The entire tournament is broadcast on SVT.
