Sweden won bronze after a swinging match

2020-01-05T16:55:54.957Z

Sweden finally clinched a JVM bronze after a turnaround in the second period and a high-dramatic ending in Ostrava. In the third period, goalkeeper Hugo Alnefelt was on the podium during the Finnish onslaught and Sweden was finally able to bring home his nineteenth JVM medal from the Czech Republic.



Sweden is the world's third best junior hockey team, it is clear after this afternoon's bronze match against Finland. A match that Sweden grew into after a disadvantage from the first period.

The first period started off quietly and it was clear that the two teams had much better played in the later match for the gold money in the tournament. Finland took the lead through Patrik Puistola who sent in the puck at the left skate. The umpire called on the target but quickly decided to approve Finland's management target.

Finland takes the lead with 0-1

Rasmus Sandin who really found the goal form at the end of the championship gave a quick response through a distinct draw shot up the left intersection above Julius Annunens bump. Sweden's loyal attitude became especially clear when Nils Höglander sent a pass straight into the gap on Finland's best player, Matias Maccelli. The Finnish forward was given an open street and had no problems outscoring Hugo Alnefelt to 2-1.

Fagemo scored his eighth goal

Sweden was the better in the second period and acknowledged halfway into the intermediate act. Nils Lundqvist made a fantastic long pass to his name with the surname Höglander. Annunen passed Höglander's first shot, but the return was perfect for striking Samuel Fagemo who could easily set his eighth goal in the tournament.

Phagemo acknowledges 2-2

Shortly thereafter, Annunen was in front of a big board when Linus Öberg threw a puck on the chance in front of the Finnish goal. The puck bounced on the Finnish goalkeeper's skate into goal and Sweden had turned.

Early in the third, the junior crowns got a golden position to pull from when they had 5-3 power play for over a minute. But Sweden's usual effective power play resolved with its absence and 3-2 stood.

Huge scoreboard of Finland's goalkeeper 3-2 to Sweden

Finland created great pressure during the closing minutes, but Hugo Alnefelt and the Swedish defense were able to keep close with great skill and luck. Especially the last minute was really sweaty for the Swedish defense but despite great chances for Finland there were no more goals in the match and Sweden can leave the Czech Republic as bronze medalists.
