Gustav Forsling and Alexander Nylander scored a goal and had an  assist each – as Sweden beat Canada 5-2 in the last game of the preliminary round – at the world junior hockey championship.

Regardless of Thursday’s result, Canada was guaranteed third place in Group A quarter-final play Saturday.

The Canadians will play host Finland at Hartwell Arena – while Sweden will face Slovakia in the quarter-finals.

Mitchell Stephens and Mitch Marner scored for Canada : which had  a regulation win, overtime win and two losses in the preliminary round.  Mackenzie Blackwood made 27 saves in front of a raucous crowd at Helsinki Ice Hall.

Three of Sweden’s goals came on the power play – with Canada struggling to stay out of the penalty box throughout the game –  getting slapped with 10 minor penalties in total.
