Watch: Lepisto Nails Backlund with Vicious Head Shot



Things are heating up in Toronto between rival nations Sweden and Finland. Sami Lepisto drilled Mikael Backlund as the forward tried to exit the zone afer a crazy scramble in Sweden's end. That's a rough shot. Even rougher for Sweden is that Lepisto was only given a minor on the play and it was matched by a retaliation minor from Gabriel Landeskog.

Backlund was bleeding from a cut on the bridge of his nose but he stayed in the game.

Sweden still leads 1-0 late in the third.
