After all, the goal of this tournament is to see who might be able to perform in the NHL one day - higher level against higher level competition - not who can score a couple of poins against a marginal CIS team.
That and that game was the only chance the kid might have had for the tournament so he was probably all pumped for that game...had he not played well he never would have had a chance in the final since he only had what a single shift up to that point
Unfortunately the game might be the highlight of his career as a Hab...of course I could be wrong but he hasn't proven a thing most of those kids
