TORONTO — Sweden slipped past Russia 3-2 Monday night at the world junior hockey championship to remain undefeated in round-robin play.After the game, however, Toronto Maple Leafs 2014 first-round pick William Nylander said his team still has more to give. I think weve got a little ways to go, said Nylander, who had two assists in the win. Were still not at our top level yet. Well get there as the playoff round starts.Detroit Red Wings prospect Axel Holmstrom scored the game-winner at 10:53 of the third period, one timing an Oskar Lindblom feed.Vancouver Canucks prospect Gustav Forsling scored two power-play goals for Sweden (3-0) while New York Islanders 2014 fourth-round pick Linus Soderstrom made 27 saves for the win.Nylander now has two goals and two assists at the tournament.Vyacheslav Leschenko scored both goals for Russia (2-1) while Islanders 2014 third-round pick Ilya Sorokin stopped 23 shots in the loss.With the win, Sweden improves to 3-0-0 at the tournament and sits atop Group B while Russia drops to 1-1-1 with the loss.Sweden dominated the opening period, out-shooting Russia 11-2 at one stage. However, Sorokin stood tall keeping his team in it.Swedens first quality scoring chance came at 7:33 of the opening period as Lindblom, a Flyers prospect, got a wrist shot off in the slot that Sorokin gloved to keep it scoreless.I think as a team we played a lot better in the first, said Nylander. We want to try to get our game to be as consistent as we played in the first. I think we gave them some more chances there in the second and then picked it up in the middle of the third.We just need that consistency and well be good.Moments later Sorokin went cross-crease to rob Adam Brodecki of another quality scoring chance.Forsling got Sweden on the board at 10:38 of the first with Calgary Flames prospect Rushan Rafikov serving a hooking penalty. Forsling, Vancouvers 2014 fifth-round pick, put his point shot past a screened Sorokin for his first of the tournament.Leafs 2014 third-round pick and Russian defenceman, Rinat Valiev, knows his team needs to have better first periods to compete at this tournament. We always know we have to start fast from first period, he said. But were always starting slowly and then second period better and then third period (even) better. I dont know why.Sweden held a 1-0 lead until late in the second period.Leshenko got his first of the night at 14:15 of the middle period after putting home a rebound off of Ziat Paigins shot.Leshenko netted his third of the tournament at 3:33 of the third period, backhanding a rebound past Soderstrom on his glove side to give Russia a 2-1 lead.We increased our tempo, increased our speed and increased our intensity, said Russian captain Vladislav Gavrikov of the message from the coaching staff between periods.Buchnevich nearly gave Russia a two-goal advantage at 3:56 of the third, on a partial break, but Soderstrom managed to get his right pad out to keep it a one-goal game.Forsling tied it 2-2 at 6:44 of the third, on a power play, putting a point shot past Sorokin for his second of the night.It was nice. There was many people in front of the goal so I just get a shot through the guys and to see it go in —it was nice, said Forsling of his two nearly identical goals. Nylander sets me up really good. Weve got some people in at the goal so Ive got to give thanks to them.Russia thought theyd taken a 3-2 lead prior to Holmstroms winner as Ivan Barbashyov re-directed a shot on Soderstrom, but officials ruled the puck did not cross the goal line.Gavrikov declined to comment on the ruling.Sweden concludes the preliminary round against Switzerland on Wednesday while Russia plays the Czech Republic.Notes: Russian forward Anatoli Golyshev missed the game serving a one-game suspension for his hit on Switzerland defenceman Phil Baltisberger. Baltisberger, who has two goals and 10 points this season with the Guelph Storm of the Ontario Hockey League, is listed as day-to-day. Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping .

The 90-plus minutes of play are about trends and approach.SAN JOSE, Calif. - Henrik Lundqvist is playing like an All-Star, even if hes not recognized as one.Lundqvist made 30 saves just hours after getting passed over for the All-Star game and the New York Rangers completed a rare California sweep by beating the San Jose Sharks 3-1 on Saturday night.I want to be one of those guys, obviously, Lundqvist said. I see myself as a guy that can compete against the guys that are there. At the same time, theres a lot of guys having a strong season right now. For me, its more important to get the results right now.Chris Kreider scored one goal and set up Martin St. Louis for another for the Rangers, who have 13 wins in 14 games for the first time since 1973. That includes wins in a four-day span at Anaheim, Los Angeles and San Jose — the first time New York has even beaten those three teams on the road in the same season.Rick Nash added an empty-net goal to seal it.It was a great answering of the bell, Nash said.

Antti Niemi made 28 saves.Even the return of Joe Thornton couldnt help the Sharks, who were coming off a second 7-2 loss to St. Louis in a six-day span.

Boyle got a bloody nose on his opening shift and had to go to the locker room. But he was back later in the first for a video tribute that was followed by a long ovation and stick tapping from both teams.It was an amazing moment, he said. It was just a minute long, but thats going to stay with me for a lifetime.The Rangers took nearly 10 minutes to get their first shot on goal, but still ended up ahead 2-0 after the first period when they scored after faceoffs in the offensive zone.Kreider set up the first when he tapped a loose puck to St. Louis, who knocked it in from the slot to make it 1-0.Later in the period, Kreider tipped a shot by Dan Girardi on goal after a faceoff win by Stepan and then tapped in the rebound.NOTES: Nash and Sharks D Brent Burns were picked for the All-Star game. ...
