Day two of the IIHF World Championships kicked off with a game between Denmark and Sweden. Goals were scored as Denmark came out on top. It was their first-ever victory against Swedes at the World Championship level.
Swedes showed early that they didn’t come to toy around hitting the cross-bar one minute into the first period. However, their own offensive zone penalty gave Denmark a chance to stabilize the game. Carl Klingberg was sent to the box for goalie interference. No Bueno on that one for Denmark but the game carried on more or less equal. They even managed to get another two-minute powerplay but that was unsuccessful as well. No goals after first but Denmark with a confident lead in shots – 7:3.
Carl Klingberg was the first to score in the game after a brutal mistake by Denmark’s player who dropped back the puck and it fell right onto the stick of Klingberg who was all alone in front of the net and beat Sebastian Dahm for the first time in the game. In one of the rare opportunities in the second period, Nicklas Jensen got his first goal of the tournament with a re-direct that came from a shot by Julian Jakobsen. Just five minutes later Swedes regained their lead from when Henrik Tommernes shot the puck into the top left corner. Denmark wasn’t okay with that and went to respond and once again it was Jensen who put in a beautiful backhander into the net. Emil Kristensen followed up with another goal – wrist shot from the hash marks to give his team their first lead of the game. 3:2 for Denmark after forty.
