Sweden Wins Opener 3-1 Over Norway
STOCKHOLM – This year’s Tre Kronor kickoff would end with a victory for the Swede’s who refused to let it’s Norwegian guest spoil the tournament opener as they did for them last year with a 3-1 victory over Norway in Friday’s evening game.
Jakob Silfverberg, Marcus Kruger, and Loui Eriksson scored for Sweden, and captain Daniel Alfredsson added a pair of assists. Mads Hansen replied for Norway.
“Last year when we won against them, that was really special for us, so we came out with the same hope today,” said Norway’s Mathis Olimb. “They are kind of our big brother and you want to beat them, but they are good. Hopefully next time we can beat them.”
Swedish goalie Jhonas Enroth outdueled his counterpart Lars Haugen for the win as Sweden outshot the Norwegians 44-20.
