Tampere (Finland) – Sweden beat Denmark 4-1 at the World Cup in Tampere, winning their sixth game of the tournament, and will face the also undefeated USA team on Tuesday for first place in Group A. The Danes are fifth in a row after their third defeat a point behind Germany, who need to beat France on Tuesday to advance to the quarter-finals. The Danes will face Finland.

The Danes had a successful start to the game, opening the scoring in the 4th minute thanks to Nicklas Jensen. The Swedes thus conceded only the third goal in the championship.

They had an ideal opportunity to equalize in the subsequent 90-second power play, five on three, but goalkeeper George Sörensen effectively destroyed Raymond’s best chance. Carlsson had another chance. Everberg managed to equalize only in the 14th minute, who managed to quickly move the puck from behind the goal at the post and beat the Danish goalkeeper.

In the first period, the Danes sent only two shots at goalkeeper Wallstedt, but they started the second part more actively. However, they did not take advantage of their opportunities and then, like the opponent, they also wasted a 93-second power play five on three. And the Swedes punished them for it. Petersson gave them the lead in the 33rd minute when Lauridsen was sent off.

The Swedes continued to be more active and Raymond or Marcus Sörensen could increase the lead. The Danes were sparing with their shooting attempts. at the end of the second period, Boedker hit the crossbar. The same happened on the other side in the 41st minute for Sandin.

Even considering the fact that the Danes tested Wallstedt with only eleven shots for the entire match, there was no drama. The Swedes, on the other hand, added two goals and were sure to go for the next three points.
