Wednesday, 02 April 2008

Hayley Wickenheiser had three goals in the first period โ€“ one at even strength, one on the power play and one shorthanded โ€“ as Canada downed Sweden 6-1 in exhibition play on Wednesday.

The game was Canadaโ€™s last tuneup prior to the 2008 IIHF World Womenโ€™s Championship, which starts on Friday. Canada opens the event against Russia.

Colleen Sostorics opened the scoring at 3:39 of the first period. Less than a minute later, Wickenheiser found an opening and streaked down the right side, beating Kim Martin with a snap shot to the far side.

Wickenheiserโ€™s second of the game came on the power play at 15:13 and she completed the natural hat trick with a shorthanded goal at 18:41.

Cherie Piper had a goal and three assists for Canada. Piper scored in the third period to make it 5-1 and Jennifer Botterill concluded the scoring when she finished a nice play set up by Piper and Jayna Hefford.

Elin Holmlรถv scored Swedenโ€™s lone goal. Kim St-Pierre started the game in net for Canada, with Charline Labontรฉ coming in at the 10:15 mark of the second period. Canada outshot Sweden 50-15.

Team Canada will practise on Thursday in preparation for its first game of the World Womenโ€™s Championship.
