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

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
Artem Anisimov didn’t record a point in the Russian victory. He was called for a roughing penalty in the third period, but the Czechs couldn’t convert on their power play:
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.
Canada defeats Slovakia, 6-5
Mark Stone scored the game-winning power-play goal with just one second remaining in the third period. Dylan Strome didn’t record an assist on the play, but he provided the net-front presence:
Sweden defeats Norway, 9-1
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.
