Pool time: Sunday notes

The United States clinched a quarterfinals berth with a handy 9-3 win over Norway, but fascinating stuff behind them, where Finland needed a comeback to get to overtime against Germany, but Laval’s Markus Eisenschmid scored in overtime to give Germany the win. The U.S. just needs a point Tuesday against Finland to win the pool.

Cam Atkinson with a goal and two assists for the U.S., and Anders Lee had a goal.

Anders Nilsson got the win for Sweden in a win over Switzerland.

And RIP, coaches Chuck Knox and Clare Drake.
