IHLC Results – Canada 6-3 United States – 27 Dec 2006

🇨🇦 Canada 6-3 United States 🇺🇸
World Junior Championship Preliminary Round
FM Mattsson Arena, Mora 🇸🇪
Wednesday, 27 December 2006

Jonathan Toews scored his second goal of the game on a third period penalty shot to pace Canada to a 6-3 triumph over the United States at the World Junior Championship on Wednesday.

Toews was awarded the shot after U.S. forward Kyle Okposo threw his stick at the Canadian forward while Toews was on a breakaway. Toews scored what proved to be the winning goal on a wrist shot at 9:13 that caught the upper left corner of the net.

Darren Helm then followed with a pair of goals late in the final period to help Canada to its second straight win.

Steve Downie and Tom Pyatt scored in the first period to stake Canada to a 2-0 lead. Toews then made it 3-0 at 1:55 of the second but the United States struck for a goal shortly after, with Eric Johnson cutting Canada’s margin to two at 2:24.

Johnson’s goal ended Canada’s shutout steak at the world junior championship at 234 minutes 14 seconds.

The win over the U.S. came a day after Canada beat Sweden 2-0 to open the tournament.

Canada’s next game is Friday against unbeaten Germany. The Germans are 2-0 following a 4-2 win over Slovakia earlier Wednesday.
