Team Canada drubs Slovakia 8-O, as forwards Robbie Fabbri &  Nic Petan combined for a total of 7 points on the night.

Fabbri with 2, Petan, Duclair, Domi, Virtanen, Point, and Paul were Canada's scorers.  Netminder Zach Fucale with the shutout.

Canada's next game is Saturday versus Germany.

Gotta hand it to Gord Miller and other guys like him. He knows every single players name in this FIN-SVK game.

These uniforms are terrible. They look like Team USA uniforms from 8 years ago.
I wish to hell I'd never said "Winning isn't everything it's the only thing". What I believe is, if you go out on a football field, or any endeavour in life, and you leave every fibre of what you have on the field, then you've won.

I know its early in the tourney, but I didn't think Domi was going to look this good. The kid has skill.

I don't know why anyone would doubt his skill and effort level unless you aren't watching junior hockey and the Knights.  He's pretty consistently their best forward and he's taken on a pretty solid leadership role this year.  He seems to be getting the Nazem Kadri seal of 'arbitrarily declaring them to be a selfish player who doesn't work hard' moniker for absolutely no reason.

Glad I'm not the only one who saw that. The black on the shoulder pads really comes off as a dark navy blue which goes with the USA colour scheme.

Are you referring to me? I simply meant I didn't expect him to look so remarkable relative to all the other high-end talent on the team (McDavid, Lazar, Reinhart, etc). Relax.

I don't know if this 1.000 Sv% and 12.9 SH% is sustainable.

Final score: Canada 4  Germany 0

Not an easy opponent these Germans, unlike the previous game where Canada practically steamrollered over hapless Slovakia 8-0.

Germany, while not exactly  an offensive powerhouse in that descriptive sense of the word, made the Canadians work a little harder for the win.  Eric Comrie, Team Canada's goaltender was kept busy in the net, while star prospect Connor McDavid helped the cause by garnering 3 points on the night (1 goal, 2 assists).

Next up for Canada is against Finland on Monday night.

I haven't watched either of Canada's games.  I see Gauthier has no points yet.  How's he been playing?

Against Germany he went 10-0 on faceoffs and had 2 shots on net. I only caught a bit of it live, those stats are from the Leafs website.
