HELSINKI (AP) Defenseman Olli Maatta scored in overtime to lift Finland over Sweden 3-2 in their first warmup match for the World Cup of Hockey on Thursday.

Maatta wristed a shot past goalkeeper Jhonas Enroth with just 42 seconds remaining.

Forward Aleksander Barkov broke the scoreless tie for Finland with 5:20 remaining in the middle period on a power play.

Loui Eriksson, who played in the line with his Vancouver clubmates Daniel and Henrik Sedin, needed just 50 seconds more to tie the game.

Sweden went up 2-1 through Carl Soderberg midway through the final period, and Mikael Granlund's goal forced overtime with 4:59 left.

The Scandinavian rivals meet again on Saturday in another warmup for the tournament which starts on Sept. 17 in Toronto.
