Eurohockey.com's David Jahoda spoke with a big star of the Swedish team, Loui Eriksson, after the game against Norway. "Tre kronor" experienced a huge win 5:1 and the Dallas Stars player recorded two points.

 
 
 
 

The Swedish team earned nine points in four games. Tre Kronor had a slow start at the tournament but finally they heated up. The Pär Mårts’s team won the latest game against Norway easily 5:1. It was the third consecutive win for the home team.

The game was open until 15:49 to go, when the Swedes scored a goal to 3:1. “I think it was a good game. It is nice to get some goals, but there are still some things to build on here. Now we are going to have a tough game against Canada,“ Eriksson thought of the next game.

It took Loui Eriksson four games to record his first goal at the World Championship. At the time 14:00 he received a great pass from Niklas Persson, beat Norway’s goalie Haugen and made it 2:0 for Sweden. “For sure I’m really glad for it. It’s always nice to score the first goal and I hope everything is going to continue this way and I will keep scoring a little bit in the games,“ Swedish number 21 replied. Eriksson also assisted on Gabriel Landeskog’s second goal.

Eriksson is one of six NHL players on the home team (Sedin’s twins and defenceman Edler from Vancouver will be added later). Despite having the highest ice time (17:46) of all Swedish forwards and being part of a power-play line, he is only a part of the fourth Swedish line. 

“Of course, you want to play as much as you can, but the most important thing is we are winning and we are going to go far at this tournament,“ he commented on his priorities.

The Norway team plays really well in Stockholm. Roy Johansen’s team holds the fourth place in group A so far. “They have a good team with lots of great players. I feel every year they are getting better,“ Loui Eriksson said about the Norwegian team.
