Landeskog Notches Assist in Sweden's Opening Win


The Avs are 1-0 so far in Russia.

Gabriel Landeskog, Colorado's captain and Sweden's alternate captain, assisted on a Henrik Zetterberg (Red Wings) goal 51 seconds into the second period Wednesday, and Sweden started its 2014 Olympics with a 4-2 win against Czech Republic at Sochi's Bolshoy Ice Dome.

The Swedes took a 2-0 lead into the first intermission and quickly led 4-0 in the second period, following Zetterberg's score and another from Erik Karlsson (Predators) at 4:07.

The Czechs pushed back and made the score 4-2 on second-period scores from Marek Zidlicky and Jaromir Jagr (Devils), but that was it for the game's scoring.

Landeskog finished with one shot on goal and a plus-two rating in 15:16 of ice time. He also served a late first-period penalty for interference.
