Team Canada played a slightly tougher opponent in Slovakia,whose lineup boasted Richard Panik and Tomas Tatar. Martin Jones of the Calgary Hitmen was given the start tonight.
Canada was pressuring the slovaks all night long and once again they played a good all around game,and of course the almost near capacity crowd was into the game as well. Taylor Hall who plays in the OHL recorded a hat trick and was awarded player of the game for Canada.
The final score was 8-2 for Canada. Team Canada's next game is a new years eve clash with the Americans on Thursday night. It should be a good game.
There is only one game tomorrow as well as the Mens Canadain Olympic team being offically announced.
Here are some pictures that I snapped from the 9th row in section G from my cell phone.
I attended the Latvia/U.S game earlier and yes Lativa did score. It was kinda fun watching but painful at the same time seeing Latvia struggle but the majority was cheering for Latvia.
