Canada’s 2005 National Junior Team took the ice for its first international game on Monday at the MTS Centre, an exhibition game against 2004 bronze medalists Finland. A sell-out crowd of 15015 enjoyed a 6-0 Canada win, as the Red and White were less than welcoming to the visiting side from Finland.
 
Sidney Crosby opened the scoring at 19:35, on a power play, as Canada outshot Finland 16-3 but only managed to beatJoonas Hallikainen once.
 
Canada came out storming in the second and was rewarded with three goals. Captain Michael Richards banked one offHallikainen’s leg from behind the net at 7:40.  Crosby and Patrice Bergeron combined for a beauty at13:07 of the middle frame.  Crosby circled the net and fed Bergeron as he entered the slot, and one-timed itby Hallikainen.
 
Clarke MacArthur added a fourth goal at 14:42, pouncing on his own rebound.   Canada was again dominantin the shots on net, outshooting Finland 29 to 6.
 
Bergeron, with his second, and Cam Barker added third period goals as Canada claimed a 6-0 victory.  Jeff Glassmade 10 saves for the shutout and the win.  Canada will face Switzerland in its final tune-up game on Wednesday,December 22nd, at Winnipeg’s MTS Centre.
