4 more goals for Team Canada, and 4 more goal scorers.
For a team that was supposed to be "offensively challenged", they sure are having lots of success spreading the offense around through 2 games in the tournament.
The goals came from Zack Kassian and WHLers Brayden Schenn, Ryan Johansen and Cody Eakin.
Through the first two games Canada has scored 12 goals, coming from 12 different skaters.
Max Friberg scored the lone goal for Team Sweden.
Penalties were the story in the game as the Swedes were on a constant parade to the box. You can see why many fans from countries besides Canada get upset at the officiating in this tournament. It was pretty obvious that many in the calls in the game against the Swedes were not actual penalties, and they surely weren't calling Canada for similar infractions.
As a fan of Canada, that's a good thing (I guess), but as a hockey fan it was pretty sad to see.
But don't get me wrong, Sweden were pretty careless and reckless and deserved a large chunk of time in the box.
Anyways, Canada never really took true advantage of the man advantage, going only 1 for 8. Despite all the penalties the Swedes actually outshot Canada 30-29.
Oilers prospect Olivier Roy made 29 saves in the win. Sens prospect Robin Lehner started for Sweden, surrendering 2 goals through 40 minutes. Thrashers prospect Fredrik Petterson Wentzel played the 3rd period, giving up 2 goals.
The lines were interesting to watch as it was obvious midway through the game that several key players for Canada were not seeing a regular shift. Up front Brett Connolly didn't appear to play very much as the WHL Line of Connolly, Ryan Johansen and Cody Eakin was split up. On the blueline, it didn't seem as if Simon Depres or Erik Gudbranson played all that much.
Those developments will be interesting to follow as Dave Cameron still has alot of work to do to find the proper combinations on this team.
Next up for Canada, a game against Finland on Thursday night.
