World Junior Hockey Championships (WJC) 2014
« on: December 21, 2013, 04:51:56 AM »
Pre-tournament exhibition games before opening day (Boxing Day Dec. 26th), Canada vs Finland, Connor McDavid's pretty spin-o-rama...

High hockey IQ: Not only did McDavid make that little pass to Horvat on 2nd goal, he knew Finn wanted to clobber him. Nice spin move.


Canada wins, by the way, 4 to 2.

Team Canada defeated Team Germany 7-2, led by Anthony Mantha's hat-trick.  Jonathan Drouin assisted on each of Mantha's goals, while Canadian wunderkind Connor McDavid assisted on two others.  Even though Germany took the lead, there was no looking back after Mathew Dumba's goal tied the game, which saw Canada unleash it's offensive prowess.

Anderson, Reinhart, Horvat & Petan were the other Canadian scorers.

It's a little unnerving that they were down 1-0 and tied 2-2 against a weak team like the German's. Hopefully we see a better effort today against the Czech's

Czechs are holding on, leading 2-1 after 2, shots on goal 18 to 16 Canada.

That's exactly what I thought too.  Giving up a lead to, of all teams, Germany??!!  Perhaps it was a case of Team Canada not paying too close attention to their own game.  At least, the Canadians woke up in time to unleash their offensive power.

I'll be honest, I didn't know much about Anthony Manthra at the time of the 2013 draft. But the kid is looking like an absolute steal at 20 right now. One pick ahead of Gauthier unfortunately.

Kinda disappointed Gauthier isn't getting much ice time for Canada so far in this tournament.

This game is crazy - Canada has owned the play, both in terms of chances and puck possession. Now I know how all teams that have played the Leafs and lost this year feel.
