Blackhawks at Worlds: Day Four

See how Blackhawks players and prospects fared on the fourth day of the IIHF World Championships

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

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

Dylan Strome almost tallied an assist on this power play opportunity, but Mark Stone jammed the puck into the side of the net:

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

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.
