The preliminary round of the 2012 IIHF World Championship continued Saturday as all six competing Blackhawks saw action. Duncan Keith forced overtime between Canada and the U.S. by scoring a game-tying goal with 1:49 left in regulation, but Team USA captain Jack Johnson found the net in sudden-death overtime to give the Americans a 5-4 victory in Helsinki. Later, Sweden defeated the Czech Republic 4-1 in Stockholm for their second consecutive victory to start the tournament.

The Canada vs. USA game was everything the rivalry showdown was anticipated to be. Despite going down 1-0 just over a minute into the game, the Canadians rebounded with an equalizer less than five minutes later. In the second period, Canada took their only lead of the night on a Jeff Skinner goal, assisted by John Tavares. Johnson knotted the score at 2-2 with a wrist shot on the power play midway through the period.
