On Monday, Team Canada took care of Team USA in a 5-4 thriller. Dany Heatley scored the game winner with under a minute remaining to clinch the preliminary round victory. Dany Heatley is the leading scorer of the tournament(6 goals, 4 assists, 10 points) and has become Canada’s all time top scorer in IIHF history.
Switzerland continues to impress as they move to 3-0 atop of Group A. Slovakia continues their struggles as they drop another game, going to 1-2 in the tournament and they’re forced to the relegation group along with Slovenia, France and Italy.
Finland, Czech, Russia, USA, Sweden and Canada continue to roll along as the top teams, along with Switzerland who I just mentioned.
