Sweden: Russia takes the first

2009 U18 2009 Five Nations Tourn.

With a good overall performance Russia beaten Sweden in Five Nations Tournament's first day. For the opponents thirty-nine shots haven't been enough and Igor Bobkov concluded with thirty-seven saves as Russia skated over Sweden 5-2. Sibir's Vladimir Tarasenko opened the dancings on a powerplay at the fourth minute of play. Top ranked defenseman Dmitri Orlov made it 2-0 five minutes later, again with Russia with the man advantage. The Swedes cut down the lead at the fifteenth minute with Hampus Gustafsson, but a taller by Anton Burdasov two minutes later restored the two-goal lead on the Russian side.

In the second period Plyuschev's team made it 4-1 with a shorthanded goal by Andrei Ankudinov, but the hosts cut the lead down again with Carl Klinberg. Despite Sweden's pressure the guests remain focused to get a deserved win, even finding the fifth goal late in the third period with Vladimir Tarasenko's second marker of the match.
