Canada scores three in third, tops Finland, 5-3

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Felix Girard had a goal and an assist as Canada finished off a 5-3 win against Finland.

Canada coach Brent Sutter reconfigured his lines for the third period, and the result was goals from Brendan Gaunce and Hunter Shinkaruk. Artturi Lehkonen scored for Finland.

Girard crashed the net to poke in a loose puck at 3:39 to put Canada ahead 3-2, and then Brendan Gaunce got credit for a goal from the crease after new-look heavy line of Gaunce, Anthony Mantha and Kerby Rychel created havoc in the Finland zone.

Lehkonen rifled a shot past Canada goalie Eric Comrie at 15:07 to get Finland back within a goal, but Shinkaruk jumped on a loose puck in the neutral zone, skated through a Finland player backchecking and scored into an empty net at 18:46.

Back with more from both locker rooms.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
