Canada drops World Championship opener to Finland

Canada drops World Championship opener to Finland Canada lost its tournament opener at the 2019 World Championship in a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Finland on Friday. Finland got on the board first with a sensational breakaway goal by blue-chip 2019 draft prospect Kaapo Kakko in the opening period. Canada responded shortly after on the power play with a goal orchestrated by three Vegas Golden Knights, as Shea Theodore and Mark Stone set up Jonathan Marchessault's marker. After a scoreless middle frame, Finland took the lead early in the third on a power-play goal by Arttu Ilomaki, who had 45 points in 60 games for Lukko in the Finnish pro league this season.

KOSICE, Slovakia — Canada extended its winning streak in blowout fashion Saturday at the world hockey championship.

Mark Stone had a hat trick and Anthony Mantha scored twice in an 8-1 victory over Germany at the Steel Arena. Sam Reinhart, Thomas Chabot and Anthony Cirelli added singles in Canada's fourth straight win.

Both teams were left with 4-0-0-1 records, one point behind first-place Finland (4-0-1-0) in the Group A standings.

"Prior to the game, we talked about playing a full 60-minute game and that's what our group did today," said Canada head coach Alain Vigneault. "We were strong in our battles and made some good plays with the puck."

Chabot opened the scoring with a power-play goal at 2:01 of the first period, firing a slapshot past Niklas Treutle from the top of the faceoff circle. Stone buried a rebound at 16:43 to make it a two-goal game.

At 6:02 of the second period, Dylan Strome found Stone with a nice pass from the side of the net and he buried it to make it 3-0. Ehliz cut into the lead at 18:01 but Stone answered 48 seconds later when he corralled a bouncing puck with his skate before chipping it over Treutle's shoulder.

"I think it was our best game of the tournament," Stone said. "We managed the puck well and played well all over the ice."

Canada put the game away early in the third period with a flurry of three goals in a span of less than three minutes.

Mantha got things started at 3:01 and added a highlight-reel goal at 4:55. He intercepted a pass in the German zone, put his stick between his legs as he moved in on goal and flipped the puck inside the far post.

Reinhart scored at 5:28 and Cirelli capped the scoring at 13:10. Strome and Jonathan Marchessault had three assists apiece.

"Our team is coming together really well right now, all the lines are starting to gain chemistry," Stone said. "Marchessault and myself are probably the only two that have played together a little bit, but even in Vegas we don't play together.

"The lines are completely different than what we're used to, but now you can see that everyone is starting to jell."

Germany returns to action Sunday against the United States while Canada will next play Denmark on Monday. Canada concludes the preliminary round Tuesday against the Americans.

The top four teams in each group advance to quarterfinals. The final is May 26.

Canada has earned 26 gold medals over the 82-year history of the tournament. Its most recent title came in 2016.

BRATISLAVA, Slovakia — Damon Severson had a funny feeling he'd score in Canada's quarterfinal against Switzerland at the world hockey championship. "(Thursday) morning, I woke up and I just thought 'I feel like I'm going to score tonight. I hope I can just get one,'" said the 24-year-old from Melville, Sask. "I didn't think it was going to be like that, but luckily enough, I was able to get the tying goal." The New Jersey Devils defenceman's blast from the point trickled through Swiss goaltender Leonardo Genoni with just 0.4 seconds left in the third period, pulling Canada into a 2-2 tie to force overtime.
