Paul scores game-winning goal in IIHF Worlds final

by Matt Tidcombe @matttidcombe

Nick Paul scored the game-winning goal as Canada claimed gold at the 2021 IIHF World Championships in Riga, Lativa. 

Paul took Sens teammate Connor Brown's feed on a 2-on-1 and buried the overtime winner at 6:26 as Canada beat Finland 3-2. 

Brown wound up as the tournament's top point-getter as he tallied 16 (two goals) to lead Canada to gold. Paul had a pair of goals, as well as two assists, in the tournament while Jacob Bernard-Docker was held pointless in 10 games.

Furthermore, Senators associate coach Jack Capuano led the U.S. to a bronze medal after their 6-1 win over Germany Sunday. 

Defenceman Artem Zub played six games with the Russian Olympic Committee where he had an assist in six games. Russia were eliminated by Canada in the quarter-finals. 

Sens head athletic therapist Dom Nicoletta, head equipment manager John Forget, assistant equipment manager Alex Menezes and Dr. Tim Cregan were all part of Canada's staff for the tournament.
