TORONTO -- The old Henrik Lundqvist was back in net for Sweden.The 34-year-old Lundqvist made 36 saves to help Sweden beat Finland 2-0 in the World Cup of Hockey on Tuesday.We were confident with him coming in today, even after Jacob (Markstrom) played such a good game like he did (on Sunday), Swedish captain Henrik Sedin said. Being around Henrik for a few weeks now, we knew he was going to come in and have a great game.Anton Stralman and Loui Eriksson scored as the Swedes (2-0-0) got a firm grip on the top spot in Group B. Finland (0-2-0) is facing long odds for advancing to the semifinals.Lundqvist, who missed Swedens first game of the tournament due to an illness, struggled in pre-tournament competition, posting a 4.49 goals-against average and a .778 save percentage in two appearances. The Rangers goaltender was pulled from last Wednesdays game against Team Europe after allowing five goals on 22 shots in a 6-2 loss.I felt pretty rusty out there the first period, not as aware as I wanted to be, but I got some really good help with some loose pucks and stuff like that, Lundqvist said. Second and third, I felt more comfortable, but it was fun. I really enjoyed being out there playing. Big game, important game, not being able to play the first, you never know where its going when youre not healthy.Tuukka Rask, starting in the Finnish goal over Pekka Rinne, stopped 27 shots.We played such a great game, started off well, created so many good scoring chances, but we didnt score, Finnish coach Lauri Marjamaki said. Of course the goalie Lundqvist was impressive. But so proud of my players and our team effort. It was great today. But it is not enough.Finlands Mikael Granlund had two excellent scoring chances just past the midway mark of the third, but Lundqvist got his right pad on the first shot and Granlund put his rebound off the post.The matchup got physical in the third when Finlands Sami Lepisto caught Swedens Mikael Backlund with a questionable high hit just inside Swedens blue line with a little over nine minutes to play. Lepisto was assessed a minor penalty for roughing, while Backlund received treatment on the Swedish bench.It was a shoulder hit to the head, or towards the nose, Sweden coach Rikard Gronborg said. I know he was bleeding a little bit (from) his nose.Sweden led 1-0 after two periods. Stralman, a defenseman for the Tampa Bay Lightning, put a backhand feed from Sedin past Rask at 9:57 of the middle period.Finlands Patrik Laine had a strong scoring opportunity in the final minute of the second, but Lundqvist was able to get his glove on Laines one-timer.Every single Finnish player had a shot on goal. Laine, a first-round pick by the Winnipeg Jets, led the way with five.We had many good scoring chances, but he was playing awesome in the net, Laine said.Sweden concludes the preliminary round on Wednesday against Team North America, and Finland meets Russia on Thursday.

Cheap Custom Jerseys China . -- Former San Diego Chargers safety Paul Oliver was found dead at his Atlanta-area home Tuesday night, and a medical examiner said Wednesday that the ex-player committed suicide. ATLANTA -- Julio Jones did whatever he wanted against Carolinas defense.It didnt matter if the Falcons All-Pro receiver was wide open or in tight coverage. Regardless whom the Panthers lined up against him, Jones could not be stopped.His stats in Sundays 48-33 win were staggering.Targeted 15 times by quarterback Matt Ryan, Jones caught 10 passes for had 300 yards receiving, fourth on the career single-game list since 1960 and the most since Detroits Calvin Johnson had a 329-yard game three years ago.You cant do this by yourself, Jones said. You can play really well by yourself, but you cant win and have success by yourself. Its a team game and team effort. The way we practice and the way we love each other showed today.How dominant was Jones? He had 225 yards, more than any single Carolina opponent, by the end of the third quarter. He added a 75-yard TD catch late in the fourth.Even if star cornerback Josh Norman hadnt left Carolina, the Panthers likely wouldve struggled because they stuck to their scheme and used mostly single coverage against Jones.The tactic surprised Jones, who last season had the second-most productive single season in NFL history and has faced plenty of double and triple teams this season.It did, especially against a divisional opponent to play 1-on-1 on me, he said. We took advantage of it today and we had some explosive plays.The Carolina secondary was a mess. James Bradberry missed most of the game after banging his left big toe against Jones. Bene Benwikere and Daryl Worley were outmatched. Safety help either didnt exist or didnt matter.It was hard, Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. We thought we had a good plan coming in. We tried to covver him.dddddddddddd We tried to do some different things and apparently it didnt pan out. Credit to them.Falcons coach Dan Quinn and quarterback Matt Ryan each said during the week that it was only a matter of time before Jones started racking up big stats.After getting targeted seven times for just one catch in the Week 3 win at New Orleans, Jones began Sundays game with just 10 catches, third-most on his team.Against Carolina, he had six receptions for 152 yards at the seven-minute mark of the second quarter.His dazzling, over-the-shoulder catch in front of the Atlanta bench covered 43 yards and set up a TD run by Devonta Freeman that gave the Falcons a 14-0 lead. Jones split the coverage for a 53-yard gain that set up a field goal that made it 17-7.According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Jones and Ryan became the first pair of teammates in an NFL game with 300 yards receiving and 500 yards passing.Thats pretty cool to be a part of that, Ryan said. To me the best catch of the day was a third-and-3. He ran a short, little under route and left-hand side in traffic and snatched it. Didnt even bring it to his chest. His hands are so strong.Jones has nine games with at least 160 yards receiving. Only Lance Alworth, with 12, and Jerry Rice, with 11, had more in their first six seasons.Carolina figured they were going to come out here and stop the run game and they tried to do that, Jones said. They left me 1-on-1 out there, and we made some explosive plays down the field.---AP NFL websites: http://pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
