Should not have brought Visentin back 4 goals against in a pre-tourney game against sweden, 23 minutes into the game.

Should have brought Bunz.

Wedgewood is our #1 now, he has to be.

All bad goals....players looked deflated.

"In the past, there's been the bets where, if your team wins, the other guy has to wear your jersey or your hat or something like that," Canucks defenceman Kevin Bieksa said.

"But, usually, guys like me, I just say turn the page. That was like 10-15 years ago, so grow up. There's more important things going on at Christmas time, in my opinion.
Harsh?

Team Canada's first game kicks off today at noon on TSN vs. Finland. It will also be online at TSN.ca and available on TSN Mobile TV.

Canada met Finland last week in a pre-tournament exhibition game and won the contest 3-1.

Mark Visentin will get the start in net despite coach Don Hay pulling him halfway through the exhibition game with Sweden after allowing four goals on 17 shots in a 5-3 loss.

Don't want Visentin. We should have kept Bunz.

Canada up 2-0 midway through the first.

Mark Stone scored 2:14 into the game to give Canada the lead, burying a one-timer from the slot. Brendan Gallagher made it 2-0 before the game was five minutes old.

2-0 end of the first period.

3-1 in the second. Alexander Ruuttu scored early in the secnod period to cut the Canadian lead to one goal, but Stone's second of the game restored Canada's two-goal advantage.

Visentin doesn't instill a lot of confidence.

Huberdeau scores on the PP as Canada takes a 4-1 lead.

Another PP goal by Dougie Hamilton so 5-1.

Devante Smith-Pelley appeared to be injured and has gone to the dressing room. Awaiting an update from TSN

Brett Connolly scored early in the third to make it 6-1 and then Mark Stone with the hat trick goal for a 7-1 lead. A goal and three assists for Huberdeau.

Ryan Strome scores from Huberdeau to make it 8-1.

EDMONTON – Despite being labelled as "a one-man wrecking crew", Denmark's fight to avoid relegation at the IIHF Ice Hockey U20 World Championship will be an united team-effort.

"We have arrived here as underdogs and might not have the greatest chance of winning the tournament. But we have a good group of guys working very hard for each other to try and stay in this division and I believe we will do it," forward Nicklas Jensen tells IIHF.com ahead of Denmark's return to the top division after a three-year hiatus.

It was an overzealous local Canadian radio commentator, who earlier this week described Denmark as very much a one-man team, as he warmed to Nicklas Jensen's gallant performance during Denmark's 8-0 loss to Sweden in a pre-tournament warm-up game in Olds, Alberta, where the 18-year-old Dane, back to full fitness following a groin injury, at times almost single-handedly caused havoc in the Swedish defensive zone with the post twice denying him from getting on the scoresheet.

Humble in defeat following the game against their Scandinavian neighbours, a level-headed Jensen quickly dismissed claims of Denmark's U20 being just about him and pulled out, quicker than his own trademark wrist-shot, names of a handful of fellow peers from the current Danish U20 roster that will be worth keeping an eye out for during the next week and a half: "Thomas Spelling, Anders Schultz, Nicolai Meyer, and the Bjorkstrand brothers, where the youngest of them, Oliver is born 1995."

Edmontont crowd has been disappointing. The entrance was quiet and even when they scored. Could possibly be the worst ive heard. The Canadian fans in Europe are louder.

Hopefully it picks up.

Agreed but I think some blame also needs to fall on TSN, their audio is atrocious.

Yeah, and there's an abundance of good, physical defencemen in Buffalo's new conference. Not a good place for a guy who doesn't want to go into traffic. Also nice to see the Granlund brother that's Flame property dragging the rest of the line down.

But he is gonna be one of the most important players, a great game and some luck from him against Latvia will be a great step towards staying up.
But it will be interesting to see how he copes with being 'all alone' against some really great defences. As mentioned in the article he seemed to fare really well against Sweden being by far the biggest Danish threat offensively, and against Latvia he had two shots on the bars and other great moments in the offensive zone, so so far he seems to bring his A-game for this tournament.

Sweden up 3-2 over Latvia at the end of the first period.

Great looking maroon sweaters by the Latvian team - rocking the Vancouver Millionaires look.

Sweden up 6-3 end of the second.
