CANADA 4 vs. FRANCE 0 Recap
| Highlights | Scoring Summary

Mark Scheifele scored for the second straight game, helping Canada stay perfect with a tidy, 4-0 win over France.

Scheifele clapped home a loose puck at the right circle for his third of the tournament after Winnipeg native Mark Stone was initially turned aside. With the goal, three shots and a 10-4 (71.4%) effort in the faceoff circle, Scheifele was named Canada’s Player of the Game.

Calvin Pickard was back between the pipes after Cam Talbot posted great numbers in each of his last three starts. Pickard finished with 13 saves, improving to 2-0. Canada has allowed just four goals in the tournament.

With the loss, France has been eliminated from quarterfinal contention.

Canada will close out its round-robin schedule tomorrow vs. Finland (12:15pm CT) – the winner of which will finish first in Group B.

Stone opened the scoring with his third of the tournament, rifling a feed from the team’s leading goal scorer, Taylor Hall, past Ronan Quemener for the PPG at 8:31 of the first period.

France’s Charles Bertrand was awarded a penalty shot just a minute-and-a-half into the second, but he lost the handle between the dots, keeping Canada in front, 1-0. 

Matt Duchene put the red and white up by two at 15:26, putting home the rebound after Ryan Ellis’ point shot was knocked down in front.

On a feed from Ryan O’Reilly, Canadian captain Corey Perry rounded out the scoring with 5:15 to play in the third, sliding a shot low, past Quemener’s right leg after peeling off the left side

Perry, who was celebrating his 31st birthday, also had an assist. He is the only member of Canada’s roster that could join the Triple Gold Club this year.

Canada outshot France 46-13 overall.

Power-play goals by Markus Lauridsen, Jannik Hansen, Nicklas Jensen and Jets winger Nikolaj Ehlers fuelled a 4-1 Danish win over Kazakhstan.

With the win, Denmark (2-2-1-2) has taken sole possession of the fourth and final quarterfinal spot with 11 points, three up on Switzerland, who has one game in hand. The Swiss need a regulation
win over the Czech Republic in tomorrow’s round-robin finale to bump the Danes out.

Three of the four goals came less than 10 minutes apart in the mid-to-late first when the Kazakhs ran into penalty trouble. Lauridsen’s long bomb from the centre point put the Danes up 1-0 at 8:56, Hansen extended the lead with a wrister from the far dot at 16:45, and Jensen capped things off with his team-leading fifth of the tournament just 1:04 later, labelling a shot from the top of the
right circle glove side on goalie Pavel Poluektov.

Poluektov, who should have had Goals 2 and 3, was pulled after allowing the trey on 13 shots. Dmitri Malgin took over between the pipes and was great the rest of the way, stopping 22 of 23 in his first appearance of the tournament.

Nigel Dawes got Kazakhstan on the board with a breakaway goal early in the second period, but the comeback didn’t take. Ehlers put the Danes back in front by three with yet another PPG, circling
the point and firing a shot off the bar and in within minutes.

Kazakhstan was outshot 36-19, but the 4-1 score held until the final buzzer.

RUSSIA 3 vs. NORWAY 0 Recap
| Highlights | Scoring Summary

Ilya Sorokin stopped all 25 shots he faced in his first-ever World Championship start, leading Russia to a 3-0 victory over Norway.

Jets prospect Ivan Telegin scored the winning goal, while Artemi Panarin and Roman Lyubimov added the others. The win puts Russia (6-0-0-1) back in first place in Group A, tied with the Czech Republic (4-1-1-0) with 15 points apiece.

After outshooting Norway 12-5 in a scoreless opening frame, Telegin drew first blood at 2:09 of the second, tipping Dmitri Orlov’s blast from the right wall past goalie Steffen Soberg.

Telegin, who was drafted by the Atlanta Thrashers back in 2010 and currently plays in the KHL, spent one season (2012-13) in North America before returning home to Russia.

Panarin put the Russians up by two with a nifty one late in the period, finishing off a give-and-go with Vadim Shipachyov before backhanding it far side. Lyubimov rounded out the scoring midway through the third, batting the puck out of mid air on a rebound off the back glass.

Jets forward Alexander Burmistrov went 3-3 in the faceoff circle, with no shots, in 12:21 of ice time.
