On day four of the IIHF World Championships, Blackhawks representatives were impactful once again. Check out all the highlights below.

United States defeats Finland, 3-2 (OT)

Alex DeBrincat set up Brady Skjei for a one-timer just 50 seconds into the game to give the Americans an early lead:

After Dylan Larkin was rocked by a big hit, DeBrincat was right in the middle of the scrum:

Patrick Kane didn’t record a point, but a ref cam caught a pretty cool view of one of his shots on goal:

Kane tried to roof a backhander past Vehvilainen in overtime to no avail:


Russia defeats Czech Republic, 3-0

On the Czech side, Blackhawks forward prospect Dominik Kubalik had a quiet game. He has posted two goals, three assists, and a plus-five rating over three games in the tournament.

Sweden defeats Norway, 9-1

Andreas Martinsen was quiet for Norway, but Erik Gustafsson recorded an assist on this nice stretch pass:

The Swedes were absolutely relentless in this one, as exemplified by Gustafsson getting heated at the end of the second period with an 8-0 lead:

Marcus Kruger went scoreless in this one, but he did have a redirect opportunity in the first period that sailed just inches wide of the left post.
