Default U20 World Junior Championships: Day Three 12-28-12






Sweden 3 vs. Switzerland 2 (SO)
Tanner Richard, Switzerland, 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM, 1 SOG
Tournament totals: 2 GP, 0-3-3, +1, 2 PIM

Victor Rask's shootout tally lifted Sweden to a 3-2 shootout victory over Switzerland. Switzerland took Sweden to the brink, and held a lead into the Third Period on Mike Kunzle's third goal of the tournament, but they could not hold off the defending Gold Medalists. Tanner Richard was scoreless in the match and took a minor for high sticking that turned into Sweden's opening goal of the game. He was also 50% on draws. The Swiss now sit in 2nd place on the Group A table with games against Finland and Czech Republic yet to go. They face the Finns next on Sunday.

Russia 2 vs. USA 1
Nikita Kucherov, Russia, 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM, 3 SOG
Tournament totals: 2 GP, 1-0-1, +1, 2 PIM

Nikita Nesterov, Russia, 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM, 0 SOG
Tournament totals: 2 GP, 0-2-2, +2, 0 PIM

Artem Sergeev, Russia, 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
Tournament totals: 2 GP, 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM

Andrey Vasilevskiy, Russia, DNP
Tournament totals: 1 GP, 1-0-0, 0 SO, 1.85 GAA. .941 sv%

Artem Sergeev (pictured) assisted on Viktor Tkachyov's goal early in the Third Period that gave Russia a critical 2-1 win over Team USA. Sergeev's helper means that all Lightning prospects have now found the scoresheet in Ufa, through the first two games of the Round Robin. Fellow Lightning prospect defenseman Nikita Nesterov also had a helper in the match, assisting an Albert Yarullin goal on the power play. Forward Nikita Kucherov took a holding minor in the match, and was in the box for Jacob Trouba's lone goal for the Americans. Andrey Vasilevskiy sat backup to undrafted Saskatoon netminder Andrei Makarov who turned away 41 shots for the win. Russia faces Germany next on Saturday and sits 2nd behind Canada on the Group B table.

Watching the replay of Russia vs. USA right now on NHL Network. TSN idiots had Vasilevski (sic) as a Toronto draft pick.

Sergeev's secondary assist was just happenstance as the primary assist came from an end to end rush. Kucherov had a breakaway chance late and got stopped.
