Unfortunately, this matchup was all Canada as they dominated from the get-go and defeated the Americans Pierre-Luc Dubois, who opened the scoring one minute into Monday's win over Denmark, scored less than two minutes into Tuesday's contest — in a similar fashion as well.
Kyle Turris and Jared McCann also netted goals. Matt Murray stopped all 28 shots he saw, including a fantastic stop on James van Riemsdyk late in the third period. Both netminders were honored as their respective teams player of the game.
Jack Hughes, the expected No. In the other quarterfinals, it'll be the Czech Republic vs. Germany and a battle of Scandinavia — Sweden vs.
Canada vs. Murray is slow to get up and, while he waved to the bench that he was OK when the puck was going up the ice, was seen hunched over in the crease at times.
The Penguins netminder has a history of concussions. USA Hockey goes to the power play.
Canada heads to the power play. FYI, Russia is undefeated and entering Tuesday outscored opponents in their first six games. Second period: Canada 3, United States 0 p. He's shown on the bench with a bloody mouth. Derek Ryan was bloodied after running into Kyle Turris.
He is OK. IIHFWorlds pic. Spoke too soon because, just like that, it's Canada. Jared McCann scores from the slot. Canada leads Jared McCann has a goal in consecutive games, Canada. Referee's call on the ice stands and we're still at Canada 2, USA 0.
The goal is being reviewed.
Yet another goal waved off for Canada. Mark Stone high-sticked Darnell Nurse's shot and it won't count. He will sit for the rest of the period.
USA, the second-best power play in the tourney, now gets a chance to get back in the game. Anthony Mantha gets two and a 10 for head contact on Colin White. Frank Vatrano hits the goal post on the shorthanded breakaway.
What a chance. First period: Canada 2, USA 0 p. Dylan Larkin took a puck shot directly at him. You can see why.
He immediately goes to the bench and stays down for quite a while. Mantha feeds Kyle Turris for the easy goal.
Kyle Turris makes it Canada. Nice pass from Anthony Mantha on the rush. It's all Canada early on.
That was quick. Mark Stone sets up Pierre-Luc Dubois for the first goal of the game. MensWorlds pic. Take a peek at how the Canadians will line up
