Sweden beat Norway 7-1 for 5th win in world hockey

TAMPEAR, Finland ( Associated Press) – Sweden beat Norway 7-1 in group play on Sunday to secure their fifth win in six matches at the Hockey World Championships as Switzerland remained unbeaten and Germany extended their winning streak.

Dallas Stars forward Jacob Petersen led the way for Sweden with two goals and an assist, while Buffalo Sabers’ Rasmus Asplund also scored two goals. Detroit Red Wings goaltender Magnus Helberg blocked 19 of 20 shots as Sweden returned to a winning streak a day after losing more than 3-2 to the United States.

Germany were on a five-match winning streak after beating Kazakhstan 5–4, but it was the fourth single in that race. Yasin Ehliz scored in the third round to restore Germany’s lead after Kazakhstan went down 4-2.

Germany are without Tim Stutzl for the rest of the tournament on Sunday after the Ottawa Senators’ forward scratched what the team called a minor knee injury the team picked up against France on Monday.

Switzerland lost 2–0 to France in the first period but Nico Hisier of the New Jersey Devils scored two goals and an assist to secure a 5–2 victory. Switzerland have won all their six games, the only team remaining unbeaten, and avoiding a regulation defeat against Germany on Tuesday will ensure the Swiss qualify as the top seed in Group A.

Latvia kept their quarter-final chances alive with a 4-3 win over Britain but must beat Sweden in their last group game on Tuesday to get a chance to advance.
