In-Game Thoughts

Just some of my observations as I was watching the first period of Canada/Finland!

First Period Notes

Smith-Pelly looking to make a hit in his first shift rather than play the puck but got a nice chance in the slot.

Scheifele shows his speed early almost gives Canada a 1-0 lead

Canada gets the cycle going down low and Stone goes to the net hard and gets rewarded with a pass out front…he stuffs it home.

Stone from hubey and strome at 214 of first

Jenner levels maata

Gallagher from schwartz and Hamilton 425

Jenner’s foot speed showed it isn’t up to par on what should have been a 2 on 1 with Connolly

Gallagher for boarding

Hubey for tripping on an accidental play

Boone Jenner crushed Markus Granlund then he and Connolly get together to tag team older brother Mikael.

Strome-Stone have been very good.
Canada dominated pace of play but finland showed that all they need is one turnover to light the lamp as they came close on a few occasions with Freddie Bailing his teammate Mark Visentin out on one.


Second Period notes

Connolly-howden-F Hamilton an early line in the second…Smith Pelly has been moved to another line.

Stone bumps off players well and finds open ice…showed it there making it 3-1

Freddie did all of the grunt work on that one.

Smith-Pelly now playing with Howden and Strome, Tanner Pearson up on the first line with Scheifele and Gallagher.

Noe Pearson-Connolly-Jenner again…Pearson being used all over…Don Hay must trust him.

Harrington blocks one with his head as Visentin leaves another open head then Smith-Pelly blocks one with his ankle. Limps off

Now trying out Schwartz-scheifele-strome

Scheifele robbbbbed by Gibson

First PP sees Gormley and Beaulieu on the point with stone, Hubey and pearson up front.

PPG Huberdeau snipe from top of the circle over the glove of Gibson assisted by bealieu and pearson

Jenner-Connolly-Schwartz now with Smith-Pelly off to the room

Second PPP unit was 4 forwards, schwartz, gallagher, scheifele, strome and the lone D was Dougie Hmailton who scores to make it 5-1

Strome-Stone-Huberdeau now a don Hay continues to juggle...with a 5-1 lead he can afford to try things. Still no DSP

Smith Pelly is not on the Team Canada bench after blocking that shot earlier in the frame.

Schwartz-Freddie-Gallagher Freddie replaced Scheifele on this line...Hay is trying anything and everything he can think of I think. Still no DSP.

5-1 after 2 shots 27-17 for Canada

Third Period:

beauty pass by tanner Pearson to send connolly in alone...gormley with the other assist

DSP has been shut down for the night.

Line juggling has slowed down since DSP has left the game...

stone with the hat trick

last canadian hat trick was Dec. 29th 2010 when Brayden Schenn got 4 against Norway.

Granlund just missed on a cross-ice pass...had a gaping net.

ryan strome fires one from the top of the circle and beats Gibson. 8-1

DSP seen leaving Rexall Place with a cast on. terrible news for team canada.

8-1 final  Boone Jenner is a faceoff beast

off to talk to the players.
