World Junior Championship: Oscar Dansk breaks out a victory dance

Oscar Dansk became Oscar Dance after Sweden defeated Russia in their final game of group play.

Sweden and Russia finished a thrilling game on Tuesday morning that resulted in Sweden remaining perfect in group play with a 3-2 final.

This made Swedish goaltender Oscar Dansk happy enough to breakout his alter ego, Swedish junior team goaltender Oscar Dance:

Just look at him go!

Sweden managed the victory after a late goal from Jacob de la Rose and finished group play with a perfect 4-0-0-0 record. While Sweden executed excellent passing plays, the team failed to finish at times, which compounded with some stunning plays by Dansk's counterpart, Andrei Vasilevski, kept the Russians within striking distance throughout the game.

Two games still remain in the group portion of the tournament, with Canada facing the Uniter States and Finland challenging Switzerland.
