Slovakia records important hockey win

Slovakia defeated Sweden 2-1 at the World Hockey Championships in Goteborg last night with a dramatic third-period comeback on goals by captain Miroslav Šatan and Dušan Milo. The Slovak squad had been strengthened before the match by the arrivals of Michal Handzuš and Ladislav Nagy from the Phoenix Coyotes, while Ľubomír Višnovský and Ziggy Pálffy of the Los Angeles Kings are expected to suit up today against Austria. The quarter finals, for which Slovakia has now qualified, start on the weekend.
