Sweden rallies for sweet 7-5 win.

The gold Germany team ran out to a quick 4-1 lead, but found themselves on the wrong end of a defense-less game.

So yeah finally Sweden got a win. Much like the Patriots, they like playing from behind. This time though, was the first time they actually completed the come back and won.

Melito had a hat trick in the first, then vanished. Legere had a first period goal and joined him.

Long, JA, Morin and JA again had the game tied at 4-4 before Silk briefly put Germany back on top 5-4. Santanello roofed one on a 2 on 1 break to tie it at 5-5 heading into 2nd recess.

In the third if felt like the last shot would win the game. But a winless Ben Minsk would not allow a 3rd period goal no matter how hard he tried to. At the other end, Grasso had a rare goal and then Coughlin scored and even rarer goal, as green slipped away with the 7-5 win.

Both teams are now 1-2, tied with 1-2 Poland, and all trailing 3-0 Finland.
