Big day at the World Championships today. The focus was on Canada and the United States, who were both in action…
And it was a great opportunity to see how the Canadiens’ players are doing so far. Let’s see what happened.
The team’s second goal was scored by Sean Farrell on the power play after he received a nice little pass from none other than Lane Hutson.
From Hutson to Farrell…
I have a feeling we’ll be hearing that a lot in the coming years.

While Hutson and Farrell stood out in today’s game, the opposite was true of Luke Tuch, also a member of Team USA. In fact…
The CH prospect didn’t really get a chance to shine, spending just 2 minutes 53 seconds on the ice.
That’s not very much. We know that in this tournament, teams like to give priority to veterans and (especially) NHL players… And Tuch got a taste of that today.
Another victory for Canada and Samuel Montembeault
The Slovakia match also gave the impression that things might get a little easier for the Canadians… And the same thing happened as in the USA match. Canada won 2-1 in a shootout.
Like Luke Tuch, Justin Barron spent most of the game on the bench, playing just 2 minutes and 11 seconds. He made a grand total of three appearances on the ice in the entire game…
I just hope it doesn’t affect their confidence. That’s all that’s important, in the end.
– He’s doing well.

Friedman on 32TP: “Someone said to me a couple of weeks ago that they would not be surprised if Sean Burke was on Don Maloney’s radar for the Calgary Flames, as a General Manager”.
