Philip Holm scored his first goal in the World Championships in his second ever game. He also proved the adage that you go to the net and good things happen. William Nylander’s shot was deflected over the net, and Holm was perfectly placed to pounce on the rebound.
Italy scored on the power play so early in the second, so this is the game-winning goal for now.
Holm is a rumoured target of the Leafs in their quest to add depth.
