Early tilt between Canada and Poland.  Canada score twice in the first period.  Deja vu in the 2nd as the Canadians control this game at 4-0 with a period to go.  Poland get 2 back but the Canucks finish with 2 more and win this game 6-2.  Canada got 2 markers from Rob McLaughlin and singles from Neil Kelly, Paul Harty, Harve Mihalic and Rob McKean.  Poland got goals from Jeff Kostick and Bryon Wright.  Poland went 0-1 on the PP and Canada was 0-0.  Players of the game went to Polands Jeff Kostick and to Canada Rob McLaughlin.

Late game between the league leading USA and 2nd place Swedes.  This one was a beaut!!!   Swedes score the lone goal in the 1st.  Both squads score in the 2nd leaving the Swedes on top 2-1 after 2.  Swedes score mid way through the 3rd taking a 3-1 lead.  USA make it a 3-2 game with 3 minutes on the clock.  Swedes took a too many men penalty with 2 minutes to go and the Americans pulled their back stop and pushed.  They could not solve Swedes Scott McCallumas he shut them down and Sweden wins 3-2.  Great game at both ends of the pond.  Both teams went 0-2 on the PP.  USA got a goal from Joel May and a top shelter from Dan Barrett.  Sweden got 2 goals from Mike Rukavina and a single from rookie sensation Dave Skingley.  Dave not only leads his tema and all rookies in scoring but also leads the league in penalty minutes…may have to call him Stan Mikita.  Players of the Game went to Swedens Scott McCallum and to USA Joel May.
