Oilers Update - Canada beats Sweden 3-2 IIHF Championship

James Neal's goal and assist, and Jonathan Bernier's brillant show stopping saves, helped lift Canada to a 3-2 win over Team Sweden. Moments after Neal's opening goal in first 2 minutes of the hockey game, Sweden's David Petrasek tied the game on the power play.  Oilers' Magnus Paajarvi provided the assist on the goal.

John Tavares and Brent Burns also added goals for Canada as they now get set to face Russia on Wednesday.

Jordan Eberle was held off the score sheet, yet found the sin-bin for a slashing call in the second period.
