Canada vs Slovakia 

Let’s just say this game was basically over after the first period. Canada came out strong and made Slovakia look silly all game. Two goals from Robby Fabbri and one from Anthony Duclair made it 3-0 nothing after one. In the second Nick Paul scored to make it 4-0 Canada and at that goal they were out shooting Slovakia 22-4. When Brayden Point scored to make it 5-0, Slovakia pulled goaltender Daniel Gibl. Max Domi, Nic Petan and Jake Virtanen all netted a goal giving Canada a 8-0 win over Slovakia. Canada goalie Zach Fucale recorded the shutout. Just look at some of the Canadian team players numbers.

Games continue tomorrow at 1pm when Sweden takes on Denmark. The United States has an off day before returning to play on the 28th against Germany.
