Saturday WJHC results:

Team Czech Republic hung on to defeat Team Belarus 6-5 in a wild scoring game.  With the loss and last place in their group with no points, Belarus goes to the relegation round.  A bitter disappoint for this young Belarussian squad; Team Sweden beat Team Switzerland 7-2 taking advantage of several turnovers. The win clinched first place for Sweden in their group;  and Team Finland beat Team Slovakia 5-2.

A day after losing in the shootout against Team USA at an outdoor game in Orchard Park, Team Canada made no mistake in shutting out Team Denmark 8-0 yesterday (Saturday).

Canada got goals from Brett Howden (with two), Cale Makar, Sam Steel, Alex Fromenton, Michael.McLeod, Robert, & Drake Batherson, including Cal Foote with the three assists.

The victory ensures Team Canada of grabbing the top spot in their group. Canada will now play either of Team Switzerland or Team Czech Republic for the Quarter-Finals Tuesday.

Liljegren with a big hit tonight:


He had a similar/almost identical hit in a game last week as well. Certainly not something that he's known for but it's nice to see that he's willing to get physical when he needs to.

It was pretty obvious to anyone from the start that Team Canada was ready to demolish the Team Switzerland with some good old-fashioned scoring.  And hey, no mind games here.  Got that Mr. Wohlwend? 

Canada got goals aplenty from Brett Howden, Drake Batherson (with 2), Cale Makar, Maxine Comptois, & Conor Timmons, et al., in an 8-2 rout of the Swiss Tuesday (yesterday).
