MINSK, Belarus -- Defending champion Sweden edged Norway 2-1 Tuesday for its third straight victory at the hockey world championships. Alexander Ovechkin Jersey . Linus Klasen was in front of the net to knock in the winner off a pass from Gustav Nyquist 7:18 into the final period for the Swedish comeback. "I just tried to break through to the net and then went around and tried to put it backdoor for Klasen and he was able to put it in," Nyquist said. Sweden remains the only unbeaten team in Group A. It leads with eight points from three games, followed by Canada with seven points and Norway with six. In other games, Finland blanked Germany 4-0 in Group B and Denmark beat Italy 4-1 in Group A for their first victories. Sondre Olden put Norway 1-0 ahead on a breakaway in the second half before Joakim Lindstrom tied it for Sweden on a power play. "It was a tough game," said Nyquist, a Detroit Red Wings forward. "They were tight on us, they had a lot of guys back and we had to go through five guys the whole time. We didnt create enough chances thats something we got to work on." Added Norway defenceman Jonas Holos: "We battled hard again, but theyre better than us." In another Group B game, defenceman Arturs Kulda scored twice and Juris Stals netted the decisive goal 3:22 into the third period to lift Latvia past Kazakhstan 5-4 for its second win. After losses to Latvia and Russia, Finland finally found its stride. Petri Kontiola and Jarkko Immonens first-period goals gave the Finns a 2-0 lead before Olli Palola and Leo Komarov scored 30 seconds apart in the second. "Maybe its a bit of a turning point. Its certainly good to get a smile back on our faces," Kontiola said. Goaltender Pekka Rinne made 20 saves for the shutout. Latvia has six points in Group B, Finland has three, Germany five and Kazakhstan one. Jannik Hansen scored short-handed for Denmark. Jesper Jensen and Emil Kristensen netted one each before Kim Staal added the last into an empty net. Denmark next plays Canada on Thursday. "If this tournament has proved anything its that anybody can beat anybody," Hansen said about Denmarks hopes to advance to the quarterfinals. "If you have a fortunate day and couple of bounces, anything can happen." Diego Kostner scored for Italy. "Tactically, defensively we played a sound, solid game" Italy coach Tom Pokel said. "So it was a tough one to swallow today." Denmark and Italy have three points each in Group A. John Carlson Jersey . Interestingly, the culprits were not rookies, but well paid, experienced pros. The first gaffe came in the 24th minute of arguably the biggest early season MLS game in history between Seattle and Toronto. Sounder newcomer Marco Pappa, (with over 100 MLS games, and 39 Guatemalan Caps to his name) attempted a back pass to one of his central defenders. Jonas Siegenthaler Jersey . At quarterback, all agree that Andy Dalton has been a wonderful surprise, but to truly progress he has to play his best in the playoffs. The two losses in the wildcard rounds keep the evaluation on Dalton open -- just like it did for Peyton Manning many years ago and Matt Ryan until last year. http://www.thecapitalshockeystore.com/Capitals-Justin-Williams-Adidas-Jersey/ .500 ball against teams with winning records, so they needed a huge lift from somebody Tuesday night in a matchup of division leaders.OTTAWA - The University of Ottawa and its president, Allan Rock, face a class action lawsuit over the suspension of the schools mens hockey team in connection with a sexual assault investigation.The legal proceeding was launched Tuesday in Ontarios Superior Court of Justice by lawyer Lawrence Greenspon — an alumnus of the university — on behalf of student Andrew Creppin and 21 other members of the varsity hockey team.Two students who were on the team were charged last summer with sexually assaulting a female student at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay in February. The two are not part of the class action.Almost a month after the alleged incident in Thunder Bay, Rock suspended the entire hockey team for the season.The court filing, which seeks $6 million in damages, is necessary because the university wrongly tarnished the reputation of every member of the 2013-14 hockey squad, Greenspon said.It was launched against the University of Ottawa for the way they treated the members of that 2013-14 mens varsity hockey team, Greenspon told a news conference.We seek to have all of the 12013-14 players, except the two that have been charged, certified as a class in order to pursue the University of Ottawa for damages caused to the team members.Creppin, one of the players, is currently the only one with his name on the lawsuit.He said Tuesday that others on the team preferred not to face the scrutiny that would result from going public.But with his hopes of hockey stardom all but dashed following the suspension, Creppin said he wants to clear his name to ensure there are no questions about his ethics as he pursues a career as a chiropractor.Creppin, who is studying human kinetics, said he and other team members have been under a cloud since the suspension was announced.He said he and some other players were at the Thunder Bay hospital with an ailing teammate at the time thee sexual assault was alleged to have occurred. Brooks Orpik Jersey. The school wouldnt comment on the lawsuit on Tuesday, saying it had yet to see the court filing.The University of Ottawa has not yet been served with any documents relating to a legal action on this subject, said Caroline Milliard, the schools media relations manager.We will review any legal documents when they are served.Many of the students who were suspended and are represented by the lawsuit have been forced to apply to other universities in order to continue playing hockey, said Greenspon.It hasnt been easy for any of them, he said.Two of the suspended players, Guillaume Donovan, 24, and David Foucher, 25, both of Gatineau, Que., were each charged last August with one count of sexual assault.The alleged assault involved a 21-year-old female victim and allegedly took place in a hotel early on Feb. 2, police said.But authorities were only informed of the incident on Feb. 25, when a third party came forward with a complaint.The case has been in the legal system ever since. On Tuesday, a Thunder Bay criminal court judge held the case over for another month as the lawyer for one of the accused awaits additional evidence from prosecutors.The university also conducted its own internal investigation, but Greenspon said the investigators report has not been made public, or provided to the suspended students.The internal inquiry resulted in the firing of head coach Real Paiement.Rock acknowledged in June that innocent team members were being tarred by the scandal.The shadow cast by the allegations of misconduct has affected all members of the team, some unfairly, he said at the time.The university later said it would rebuild its men hockey program, hire a new coach and implement new behaviour guidelines.The class action lawsuit, if certified by the superior court, could take years to be settled.
