Preliminary Round

Cloetta Center, Linkoping, SWE

LINKOPING, SWEDEN – Team Canada played its second game of the tournament against one of Canada’s biggest rivals, the Russians. The Canadian offense was stifled by the Russian defensive system in the first, but did manage to score one. Jayna Hefford scored from her knees as she converted on a Canadian power play for the only goal of the period.

Canada was able to score a pair of power play goals in the second, both from shots at the top of the left circle. Cheryl Pounder had the second goal for Team Canada, and Hayley Wickenheiser edged closer to the century mark as she now has 96 career goals. Canada’s Jayna Hefford scored her second of the game to give Canada a 4-0 lead. Captain Cassie Campbell stole one off a Russian defenceman and beat the netminder on a breakaway with just 7 seconds remaining in the period. Russia did have a couple of good scoring chances, but Canadian netminder Charlie Labonte, getting her first World Championship start, shut the door.

Canada’s player of the game, Caroline Ouellette, scored a goal a minute into the third to go along with four assists on the night, which ties the Canadian record for most assists in a single World Championship game. Jayna Hefford completed the hat trick with her second power play goal of the evening. Kelly Bechard added a solo effort to give Canada an 8-0 lead. Charline Labonte made a beautiful pass up to Sarah Vaillancourt during a Russian change, and Sarah blasted one by the Russian goalie for the ninth Canadian goal. Gillian Apps added her first of the tournament to get the Canadians into double digits for the second straight game. Gina Kingsbury and Cassie Campbell’s second goal closed out the scoring for Canada for a 12-0 victory.

After a day off, Canada resumes play Wednesday against Sweden at 8pm (local). This game can be seen live on TSN, check your local listing for details.
