Perry Leads Canada Past Latvia

by Staff Writer / Anaheim Ducks
Behind a team-high three points from Ducks forward Corey Perry, Team Canada trounced Latvia 6-1 at the IIHF World Championships in Germany on Monday.

Perry, the lone member of Canada's roster who also won gold at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, assisted on three of the first four goals (all on the power play) of the game against Latvia. He now has four points in two games, having also scored a goal in Team Canada's 5-1 victory over Italy on Saturday.

New York Islanders forward John Tavares, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, and Calgary defenseman Mark Giordano each scored two goals for Canada in the game. Tampa Bay teammates Steven Stamkos and Steve Downie provided the other tallies for the Team Canada, which led 6-0 after two periods of play.

A goal midway through the third period from Latvian defenseman Georgijs Pujacs erased the shutout bid by Canada, who next play on Wednesday against Switzerland.
