Toronto survives, fairly handily, at home against Hershey. William Nylander’s hat trick included the first two goals of the night.
Game 5 is Sunday afternoon.
World Cup roster adds have been coming all day. The first hit at 3 a.m. Eastern, Finland, which included Mikko Koskinen, fresh off his strong World Championship, and Ville Pokka, whom we’ll mention again despite that he was a Sound Tiger for a few hours.
So the locally tied in the tournament, with today’s adds underlined:
USA: Jon Quick, Max Pacioretty. EUR: Frans Nielsen, Nino Niederreiter. FIN: Mikko Koskinen, Ville Pokka.
