Canada 5 - Hungary 4

Skoda Cup
Exhibition Game
Szekesfehervar, Hungary

Team Canada practiced today in front of 500 fans and played in front of a standing room only crowd of 4260 in an exhibition game versus the Hungarian National Team.

The Canadians received a police escort through Budapest enroute to the game and were greeted by more than 1000 fans 2 hours prior to the game. The Hungarian crowd had plenty to cheer about as the home team led the Canadians 4-3 heading into the third period. The Canadians rallied to score 2 goals in the third period and outshoot the Hungarian Team 41-20 overall to win 5-4. Both teams posed for pictures following the game and the sellout crowd stayed and cheered the teams for 30 minutes.

Team Canada has received the "Royal Treatment" in Budapest and will tour the City tomorrow before heading to Basel, Switzerland for the Skoda Cup.
