En route to a 7-1 win over Slovakia which included a goal and two assists for Kessel and two assists for JvR.

Now it’s Team Canada’s turn to look convincing while destroying a lesser hockey nation.

PK Subban and Matt Duchene will not play; Martin St. Louis and Dan Hamhuis will be the 13th forward and 7th defenceman respectively.

Let’s go, Canada.

    Canada beat Norway 8-0 to open Vancouver. The over/under on the goal differential today has to be at least five or six.
