World Cup of Hockey: Sweden beats Finland, 2-0

The old Henrik Lundqvist was back in net for Sweden. 

The 34-year-old Lundqvist made 36 saves to help Sweden beat Finland 2-0 in the World Cup of Hockey on Tuesday. 

“We were confident with him coming in today, even after Jacob (Markstrom) played such a good game like he did (on Sunday),” Swedish captain Henrik Sedin said. “Being around Henrik for a few weeks now, we knew he was going to come in and have a great game.” 

Anton Stralman and Loui Eriksson scored as the Swedes (2-0-0) got a firm grip on the top spot in Group B. Finland (0-2-0) is facing long odds for advancing to the semifinals.
