Defenceman Morgan Rielly had a goal and an assist for Canada, who trailed 2-0 after the first period. Ty Rattie, Mark Scheifele and captain Ryan Nugent-Hopkins also scored.

Marko Dano scored twice and Tomas Mikus also scored for Slovakia. Adam Nagy turned away 24 of 30 shots in Slovakia's net.

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.
