Patrick Thoresen (Norway) and Stephane da Costa (France) were the offensive stars of the game, scoring a pair of goals each. Ken Andre Olimb was the other goal-scorer for the winning side.

Canadiens Forward Andreas Martinsen was held off the scoresheet in 16:01 of ice time. He collected two penalty minutes during the game.

Former Habs goalie Cristobal Huet made 21 saves in the loss.

Martinsen and his fellow countrymen will play their second game of the tournament on Sunday against Switzerland.
