2012 WJHC CAN/DEN Game Preview

In four hours’ time the puck will drop for the third time for Team Canada at the 2012 World Junior Hockey Championship. This time they will take on Team Denmark who has struggled thus far in the tournament, losing 11-3 against the American squad on Monday, followed by a tough 7-0 loss the following day to Czech Republic.
The numbers don’t lie. Canada is far and away the best team in this matchup, having already beaten the Fins 8-1 on Monday and last night drubbed the Czech’s by a score of 5-0 but without the heroics of Czech goaltender Petr Mrazek, it would have been much worse.
Canada will look to keep their foot on the gas tonight against a Denmark team who looked very game in the first period of their first contest of the tournament against the U.S. A. before the wheels fell off. These can be very dangerous games for top teams in this tournament.
Coach Don Hay will look to make sure no bad habits are formed and that their style of play is kept intact as the guys will be playing a lesser opponent.
For Denmark it all starts and stops with Oshawa Generals star forward Niklas Jensen. Jensen has been integral for Denmark, killing penalties and running the power play from the point, something that he isn’t used to doing with his club team in Oshawa.
This game should be a romp for the Canadians. Scores in the double digits is the expected outcome, but if Denmark’s goaltender,  Sebastien Feuk, gets even hotter than he has been and Jensen has the game of his life, maybe they can make a game of it.
