Czechia jumped out to an early 2-0 lead as Adam Csabi and Jakub Stancl scored in the game's opening 3:05. 

Sweden worked to tie the game before the end of the opening period as Tom Willander and Felix Unger Sorum scored to even the contest after one. 

The Swedes controlled the pace for most of the remainder of the game. Arvid Bergstrom gave the team its first lead early in the middle frame and Anton Wahlberg used a coast-to-coast move to extend the lead to 4-2. 

Czechia's Daniel Badinka found the back of the net to narrow the gap, but Noah Dower Nilsson netted the game's only goal in the third to push the final to 5-3. 

Sweden defenseman Axel Sandin Pelikka and Czechia's Stancl were named the Players of the Game.

Team USA jumped out to an early 4-0 lead with four scores in just over five minutes in the first period. Danny Nelson opened the scoring while a trio of Boston College commits in Will Smith, Will Vote and Gabe Perreault all extended the U.S. advantage. 

After Switzerland got on the board first in the second period, Team USA responded with five more goals in the middle frame to make it a 9-1 game after 40 minutes. 

Beckett Hendrickson and Salvatore Guzzo both netted power-play scores in the third period to make the final 11-1. 

USA's Ryan Fine, who scored two second-period goals, and Switzerland's Nino Niedermann, who scored their goal, were named Players of the Game.
