On Thursday night at ČEZ Stadion in Hradec Králové, Finland got a goal from Joonas Lyytinen after only 17 seconds of overtime to beat the Czech Republic 4-3 at the U17 Four Nations Tournament. The Czechs got goals from Adam ZbořilDavid Pastrňák and Petr Vrána and René Svoboda made 25 saves in goal. Click here for a detailed recap of the game.

After one day of action, Sweden leads with three points, followed by Finland with two, the Czechs with one, and Russia is pointless. That's because earlier in the day, Sweden benefitted from three power-play goals in the second period to beat Russia 4-3. Click here for a detailed recap of the game.

On Saturday, Finland plays Russia at 15:00 CET, followed by the Czech Republic against Sweden at 18:30. For the full tournament schedule, team rosters, game photos, summaries and interviews in Czech and English, visit
