"the Preparations for the world junior CHAMPIONSHIPS in Vancouver, which starts on boxing day, is in full swing. In the night played Juniorkronorna the first of two friendlies and it was Russia who stood for the resistance in Kelowna."

"in Addition, chose Montén to rest småskadade players like Adam Boqvist and Fabian Zetterlund, and suspended goalkeeper Olle Eriksson Ek."
" All those you mention, in addition to Timothy, should be able to play rehearsal against Denmark. When it comes to Timothy, it is actually nothing new. We should have a new contact with Toronto at the end of the week, " says Montén."
"Skottmässigt it was Juniorkronorna that dominated the first two periods. The swedes led the shots with 27-13, but the score was 2-2."

"Both goalies looked really good," says Montén. "
"Directly after the målvaktsbytet gave Frölundas Samuel Fagemo the lead with Sweden 2-1 before it was Russia's turn to acknowledge. "
"But in the beginning of the third period came a Swedish tug. First 3-2 by Emil Bemström, neat framspelad of the blot 17-year-old hill Philip Broberg. The young AIK-hill impressed:"
"He is the one who has not played J20 hockey at this level but it was not, if I say so," says Montén. "
"And just then could Linköpingsforwarden Johan Södergran increase to 4-2 when Russia played in numerical superiority."
"When was Russia's national team coach Bragin enough and took a time-out."
"Ended with the extension"
"Juniorkronorna was instead close to extend to 5-2 when Rikard Grab came free."
"Despite the victory after three periods, had the law decided to play the extension. Also, where Sweden was the strongest. Where ”settled” Jacob Olofsson after neat work by Lucas Elvenes. "
"– Clearly it was a good decision. It is only the third day we are here, and have toiled hard with double training sessions and time. Now we got a match at a high tempo against a good Russia, " says Tomas Montén. "
"What are you most satisfied with?"
"– That we play and creates so much forward. We do not become too cumbersome, but capable of playing with speed on the small rink."
