Ducks at the World Championships, Day 6.

Cam Fowler scored his first goal of the IIHF World Championships as the U.S. suffered its first loss – 6-2 to Sweden – a game that is being replayed right now on Versus.

Fowler tipped in a Derek Stepan shot-pass at the front of the net in the first period, temporarily knotting the score at 1-1. But Sweden scored the next three goals of the game, all in the second period. Fowler finished with a minus-2 rating in 18:03.

Now that group play is complete, the U.S. has three games scheduled for the qualification round: Friday against Canada, Saturday against France, and Monday against Switzerland (and Luca Sbisa), all in Kosice.
