• Canada has advanced to the Finals of all six prior World Cup of Hockey/Canada Cup tournaments … Canada has now advanced to the Semifinals in four of the last five major senior international tournaments … The 2002 World Championships were the lone exception … Canada has advanced to the Semifinals in 14 of the 17 major international tournaments since 1993.

• Due to Canada's depth at center, captain Mario Lemieux has skated on the left wing on a line with Joe Sakic and Jarome Iginla … "I played left wing before with Ron Francis and Jaromir Jagr for a year and a half," Lemieux said of the Pittsburgh Penguins' line that dominated the 19 Stanley Cups. "I played right wing in 1987 (when Canada won the Canada Cup) with Wayne Gretzky. So, I can move around a little bit and adjust to the situation. I do feel comfortable. I spent most of my hockey career on the left side, on the boards, so it doesn't affect my play at all."

• Canada used the exact same line-up in its Quarterfinal game as it did its round-robin finale … Canada line combinations (from Wednesday's Quarterfinal against Slovakia)

Forwards:

Lemieux - Sakic - Iginla

Smyth - Lecavalier - Heatley

Gagne - Richards - St. Louis

Draper - Thornton - Doan

Defense Pairings:

Regehr - Niedermayer

Brewer - Foote

Hannan - Bouwmeester


• Canada has scored goals in nine of its 12 full periods played during the tournament … Canada has registered four multi-goal periods, highlighted by its four-goal second period in the Quarterfinals against Slovakia … By comparison, Canada has only allowed goals in three of its 12 periods played, with no one multi-goal periods allowed.
