John Tavares scored twice, and Corey Perry, Drew Doughty and Steven Stamkos each had two assists for Canada in a 5-2 win against Team USA in a World Cup of Hockey 2016 pre-tournament game at Canadian Tire Centre on Saturday.

Logan Couture, Jay Bouwmeester and Matt Duchene scored to give Canada a split of back-to-back games. Team USA won 4-2 in Columbus on Friday.

Goaltenders Braden Holtby and Corey Crawford split the game for Canada. Holtby faced 13 shots and gave up two goals, and Crawford made 10 saves, including a spectacular glove save on Team USA forward James van Riemsdyk.

Canada captain Sidney Crosby was a healthy scratch. Perry took his place.

Ryan McDonagh and John Carlson scored for Team USA. Goaltender Cory Schneider played the first two periods and gave up four goals on 24 shots. Ben Bishop played the third period and surrendered one goal on 14 shots.

Duchene scored at 12:11 of the second period to put Canada ahead 4-2.

Carlson scored 38 seconds into the second period on a 5-on-3 power play when he took a pass from forward Patrick Kane and one-timed a shot by Holtby.

Canada led 3-1 after a penalty-filled first period. It scored power-play goals by Couture and Tavares.

Canada coach Mike Babcock said he thought his team was guilty of overpassing the puck before the power play started to click.

“I mentioned that a couple of times,” Babcock said. “That’s what happens every time. When you get to this level, you’re trying to give it to your teammate instead of just shooting it and getting to the net. That’s how you score, shooting it and getting to the net and finding seconds.

“These are skilled players and they’re used to scoring and they want their touches. When they score a little bit, they start to relax and make better plays and see things better. When you don’t score, you press. At every level you play at, you’ve got to find your confidence. I think that was a positive thing for us tonight.”

Bouwmeester gave Canada a 3-0 lead when he took a sharp pass from behind the net from Ryan Getzlaf and scored with a wrist shot at 15:38.

McDonagh scored at 16:35 to make it 3-1 on a shot that looked like it deflected off Canada defenceman Brent Burns, who was jostling with van Riemsdyk and USA forward Blake Wheeler in front of Holtby.

Tavares scored his second goal on the power play at 8:01 of the third period when he put a loose puck into the open side of the net to Bishop’s left.

The tournament begins 17 September in Toronto.

NOTES: USA forward Max Pacioretty started the pre-tournament games on the top line with Joe Pavelski and Patrick Kane but was on the fourth line in the third period Saturday. Pacioretty played 10:05, the second fewest minutes on Team USA.
