Yes this is a new one. It’s from today against Finland as Sweden looks to join Canada in the finals.

Another day, another sick William Nylander go...oh, we used that line.

Okay, nothing beats a goal against Finland! After getting an assist on the power play William Nylander made a slick move out to his usual left side spot and then back into the high slot where Sweden has him playing right now on the power play with Nicklas Backstrom over on the right side. One pass, one shot, one goal.

The first goal of the game was an Alexander Edler shot off of a Backstrom face off win. The second goal was John Klingberg from Oliver Ekman-Larsson and Nylander, and this makes three goals with Nylander on the ice for all of them.
