Down goes Lundqvist?

The Free Press's Helene St. James, writing for USA Today, reports that Team Sweden suffered from a friendly fire incident at today's pratcice:

The Swedes have a joke about defenseman Erik Karlsson: He has one speed, and that's wrecking ball.

They are on him about slowing down in practice, though, because Monday morning at Bolshoy Training Rink, Karlsson knocked down star goaltender Henrik Lundqvist giving chase to Loui Eriksson, and wiped out star scorer Daniel Alfredsson.

"That's a tough thing," Alfredsson said, "because he really wanted to catch Loui on the breakaway and threw himself down, and Henrik was trying to make the save, and they just pummeled each other. We can laugh at it now because it wasn't too serious, but it gave everybody a big scare."
