Daniel Alfredsson scored a go-ahead goal late in the second period and Sweden went on to beat Latvia 5-3 Saturday, staying undefeated and earning an automatic spot in hockey quarterfinals at the Olympics.
The Capitals surrendered three unanswered goals in the third period to lose 6-4 to the Chicago Blackhawks in the season-opener Tuesday. They almost spoiled the Blackhawks' Stanley Cup banner-raising celebration, but Washington's defense failed to make Mikhail Grabovski's hat trick and the team's three power-play goals stand up.
"I think we know what they're doing. I think they know pretty much what we're doing, too," Blackhawks defenseman Johnny Oduya said. "From this point I think it's just a matter of will and who wants to win the most and who's fresher and who plays better."
"We're playing so well that I would rather play as soon as possible," he said.
