Another penalty. Canada's lucky Finland wasted all that potential 5-on-3 time.

Well, that was disappointing....

How did Rielly look? I've only caught the last 5 minutes or so and Canada was shorthanded for most of it. The rest Murphy was too busy trying to do everything himself.

Average, but then no one stood out in this one, except maybe RNH. Hopefully they find their game on Saturday.

I sure hope the NHL does not continue to head down the road to no contact hockey like we see across the ocean.  Players can never battle without the penalty box getting full.  That hockey is boring and the bigger rink just makes it worse.  The last 3 or 4 penalties to Canada were a joke.  The one behind the net was every bit as much of a dive than a cross-check.

I'm surprised he was listed as Canada's top player in the game.

Rielly had a real good chance early in the 3rd where he jumped into a 3 on 3 rush to make it a 4 on 3 and had a good shot from the slot.  Otherwise he didn't do much, but with so many penalties he probably had trouble getting into the game.

It's just a pre-tournament game, I wouldn't get too worked up over how they looked, they're still feeling it out.

Good news for Team Canada! NHL cancels games up to Jan 14th. That should put an end to the notion of some key players being sent back before this tournament ends.

Now all we need is this team to find its game before the tournament starts to get competitive.

I'm guessing we'll see a much better effort in the final warm up game on Saturday morning.

May be a stupid question, but I'll ask anyways.

How do they make the divisions for this tournament? I mean, how does Canada, the USA and Russia all end up in the same division?

Is it seedings from last year?

Yeah, it's based off the standings from last years tournament. Group A gets the teams ranked 1, 4, 5, 8, 9, and group B gets the others.

And Jenner gets a game misconduct after he next to murders Peterson. Good good.

He's kind of in the same situation as Rielly. Sweden's been on the PP and Canada on the PK so much neither has really been given much ice time.
