After flying in this morning, Nicklas Backstrom and his fellow Swedes took on Denmark in the preliminary round of the IIHF World Championships over in Cologne, Germany. Backstrom was a big contributor in Sweden’s 4-2 win. 

Backstrom was on a line with William Nylander and Oscar Lindberg and finished with two points (one goal and one assist).

Backstrom assisted on Nylander’s goal in the second period that put Sweden up 3-0.

Denmark struck twice to close the gap to 3-2 in the third. Backstrom put it away late in the game to seal the win with a strike from the right face-off circle.
