Ice hockey: Tre Kronor takes WC bronze against Canada – after double goals by Carl Grundström

Tre Kronor managed to get up after yesterday’s heavy semi-final loss against the Czech Republic. In an even bronze match against Canada, Carl Grundström’s double goal was decisive and Tre Kronor won its first WC medal in six years.

– We would have liked to play the late match today, but overall it is a good tournament. Very fun, but also very sad, says Erik Karlsson.

    Just like in yesterday’s semi-final, Tre Kronor started the match the best and after just over half of the first period they got a reward. Carl Grundström charged and the puck found its way behind Jordan Binnington via the crossbar.

    After Canada then both equalized and took over the lead, Tre Kronor got up.

    Grundström decided

    Erik Karlsson was a real hit when he scored the equalizing goal from distance with just over ten minutes left. It was the star’s sixth goal during the championship.

    Just four minutes later it was time again.

    From no angle at all, Grundström managed to outwit Binnington a second time to make it 3-2. Marcus Johansson then secured the final score when he scored 4-2 in an empty Canadian goal.

    – A bronze is always a bronze and something you will be very proud of in a while, says Karlsson.
