    After some more Swedish pressure, Kevin Fiala is going back to the box for closing his hand on the puck. That was close to the crease, so he's lucky it's not a penalty shot.
    A scramble in the Swiss zone and it looked like that shot from in close by Anton Karlsson went behind Descloux, off the post, and out the other side.
    After a brief scuffle the referee is handing out off-setting roughing minors to Fiala of SUI and Johansson of SWE, so we'll have 4-on-4 hockey for the next two minutes.
    Dangerous shot from the slot by Nylander Altelius, blocker save Descloux.
    After all it seems we're going to get coincidental penalties. Pius Suter gets slashing and Nylander Altelius gets tripping. One penalty is over so Sweden's advantage is down to one.
    Sweden is now going to have a lengthy 5-on-3 as Damian Riat gets the gate. They need to get something going now.
    Switzerland's Dario Meyer called for holding in his own zone, Sweden to the power play.
    Goal for Team Switzerland!
    The Swiss take the lead on the power play. After Eriksson makes a couple of saves, TIMO KESSLER puts in the rebound. Assist: Cedric Maurer, Simon Kindschi.
    Swiss going to the power play early in the third as Adrian Kempe is called for cross-checking in the neutral zone, it was also interference. He argued the call, but there wasn't much doubt about it.
    Goal for Team Switzerland!
    Right off the faceoff, Sweden turns over the puck in the neutral zone and SIn Schlapfer jumps on it, enters the zone and finds NOELE TRISCONI, who waits for Eriksson to commit and fires it under the crossbar to tie the game just 11 seconds later. Assist: Sin Schlapfer.
    Goal for Team Sweden!
    The puck comes from behind the net out front to FILIP KARLSSON, who is unchecked and has an easy tap-in. Assist: William Nylander Altelius.
    Emil Johansson, injured earlier in the period, sneaks in from the point and one-times a pass that Descloux had to be sharp on. Sweden's best chance to far this period.
    And now, wouldn't you know it, Sweden again called for delayin the game as penalty-killer Axel Holmstrom clears the puck high over the glass. Swiss 5-on-3 for :22.
    Swiss back to the attack after the goal and Sweden's William Nylander Altelius takes a slashing penalty. He seemed like the best player on the ice in the first period but Sweden strangely seems to be coming unglued this period.
    Goal for Team Switzerland!
    The Swiss finally tie the game. The puck is centered to DENIS MALGIN, whose one-timer beats Eriksson just inside the post. Assist: Noah Rod.

    Swedish defenceman Emil Johansson was slow to get up after the goal and needed assistance from the trainer. I didn't see what happened to him.
    And now a Swiss 2-on-1 and Jesper Eriksson makes a huge save on Tino Kessler. What's happened this period? Total reversal from the first period.
    The best chance for Switzerland so far, Timo Meier with the shot from the slot and Eriksson makes a big pad save in the butterfly.
    Swiss will get a 2-man advantage for :08 as Sweden's Kevin Elgestal clears the puck over the glass and out of play.
    The Swiss will now get their first ppower play as William Lagesson gets called for tripping along the boards. He doesn't like the call, but nonetheless . . .
    Big chance for Sweden on the power play, Karlsson was set up alone in front and seem to have Descloux down and out but slid the puck just wide of the post.
    Swedes now going back to the power play as Noah Rod gets called for charging.
    Now Switzerland's Edson Harlacher gets the game's first penalty for slashing. Sweden to the power play.
    2-on-1 Sweden, Nylander elects to shoot and Descloux makes a blocker save.
    Goal for Team Sweden!
    It's been all Sweden so far, and the second line scores the first goal. William Nylander Altelius circled the net and passed in front to FILIP KARLSSON, who one-timed a low shot through Descloux. Assist: William Nylander.
