The hosts are now just 1 game away from grabbing a tournament win as they get set for Game 2 against Team Europe on Thursday night.
Canada handled things pretty easily, grabbing a 3-1 win on Tuesday in Game 1.
Canada is no stranger when it comes to winning major tournaments.
They’ll look to capture the World Cup of Hockey title after securing Gold Medals in Sochi and Vancouver in the past two Winter Olympics.
Canada has not said whether or not they’ll march out the same lines as they did in Game 1. One thing is for sure, Canada will be without Claude Giroux and Jake Muzzin, who were both scratched on Tuesday night.
They’ll continue to use G Carey Price, who has not been just dominant in this tournament, but as a national team member he’s been nearly flawless. Price has gone 15-0 in his last 15 national team appearances.
Through those 15 games, the netminder has a GAA of just 1.05.
Look for Sydney Crosby to be at the center of the action here, as he leads the team with 9 points. His 9 points actually is a tournament high.
Labeled as giant underdogs, Team Europe gave Canada all they could handle in Game 1.
After nearly taking a 1-0 lead in the opening moments of the game, Team Europe trailed 2-1 in the 3rd period and had their chances to steal the game.
While they are facing elimination, they still have a lot to build off of from their loss in Game 1.
Team Europe showed they can certainly slow down Canada. They controlled a lot of the tempo in Game 1 and never allowed Canada to take control of the puck in their zone.
That is a major key here in Game 2, as they may have to do an even better job in order to keep Canada off the scoresheet.
A fast start is almost a must here. They nearly struck with that early goal in Game 1 and it showed that they have the speed to get to Canada. Capitalizing and finding the back of the net to steal the momentum is something Team Europe needs in what is almost a must be perfect situation.
