The Russians scored first and it was a back and forth battle all game long. It is a cool feeling to watch Curtis Hamilton play for Canada as well. He scored Canada's 6th and final goal and was (as we all know) a huge penalty killer when called upon. The Canadians did not take too many penalties in this game.
The Canadians were hitting all game long and that does wonders when it is a 60 minute battle.
The Americans face Finland later tonight. Canada will face the Czech Republic on Tuesday night.
