Team Sweden played their second game of the World Junior Hockey Championships today, and while William Nylander was out of the lineup as a result of his upper-body injury, fellow Leafs prospect Dmytro Timashov returned to the box score with an assist on the game's lone goal.

Canada heads into today's matchup with Denmark in an unusual spot- winless after one game. it's obviously not the end of the world, but the message is definitely clear- don't blow this one.
Denmark, meanwhile, comes in 1-0, hot off a 2-1 win over Switzerland. Nothing super impressive, but it's worth noting Switzerland put up three goals on Sweden and just a lone marker to the Danes.
Canada beat Denmark 8-0 in last year's tournament.

Tonight was a battle of former players. Brad Boyes, PA Parenteau, and Michael Grabner wore the blue and white in a foreign building situated in a familiar market. On the other side of the ice, Mikhail Grabovski and Nikolai Kulemin reminded Leafs fans of an era since past. Tonight, it was the former group that gained the most from the experience, as the Leafs eeked out a 3-1 victory in Brooklyn.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again; there's something about the St. John's IceCaps that just make the Toronto Marlies play differently. Games against Toronto excluded, the team appears to be a slightly above average group of players on the younger end of the American Hockey League.
But if you put the Marlies in front of them, it becomes very obvious that they're a group of Montreal Canadiens prospects looking to carry on the rivalry in the league below. They put an extra step in their stride, hit a little harder, cause a little more trouble, and attack the Marlies where it hurts the most; the scoreboard. Tonight was no exception to this, as they handed Toronto just their sixth regulation loss of the season.
