CZECHS SCORE EARLY AND OFTEN IN PRE-TOURNAMENT WIN OVER LUMBERJACKS

LIVERPOOL, N.S. – David Pastrnak opened the scoring just 2:25 after the puck dropped, Lubos Rob doubled the lead less than six minutes later and the Czech Republic was off and running to a 9-2 pre-tournament win over the CIBC Wood Gundy Lumberjacks on Friday night.

Pastrnak, Rob, Jakub Vrana and Martin Slansky all scored twice for the Czechs, who led 3-1 after one period and 8-1 after two despite being outshot 25-24 through 40 minutes.

Jiri Kepka had the other goal for the Czechs, while Vrana added two assists for a five-point night and Roman Prikryl and Filip Pyrochta chipped in with three helpers apiece. In total, 12 Czechs put their names in the scoresheet in the one-sided win.

Jeremy Butterworth and Brandon Leonardo scored goals for the Lumberjacks, who took time out of their Maritime Hockey League season to take part in the contest ahead of the 2012 World Junior A Challenge, which opens Monday in Yarmouth, N.S.

Both teams split goaltending duties, with Rene Svoboda and Stepan Lukes splitting time for Czechs and Billy Clarke and Jordan Lee sharing the 60 minutes for the Lumberjacks.

The Czechs kick off the World Junior A Challenge on Monday when they take on Russia in the tournament opener (4 p.m. AT).
