๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ Canada 5-1 Finland ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฎ
Exhibition Game
Gatorade Center, Turku ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฎ
Sunday, 14 November 2021

Victoria Bach scored twice, Brianne Jenner had a goal and two assists, and Canada defeated hosts Finland 5-1 on Sunday in women’s hockey to sweep the countries’ three-game exhibition series.

Sarah Fillier and Ella Shelton added a goal and an assist each, while Ann-Renรฉe Desbiens stopped 21 shots. Erin Ambrose chipped in with two assists.

Canada also topped the Finns 4-2 in Helsinki on Thursday before Saturday’s 8-0 whitewash in the first of two at Turku’s Gatorade Center.

The Canadians led 3-0 after Sunday’s first period on goals from Fillier, Shelton and Bach before Susanna Tapani replied in the second for Finland on a power play.

But Bach made it 4-1 with under eight minutes left in the third, and Jenner put things out of reach just over a minute later.

Canada finished 1 for 3 with the man advantage, while Finland scored its only goal on one of its eight opportunities.

“We started strong, but got into a little bit of penalty trouble in the second trying to cheat a little bit,” Jenner, a native of Oakvillle, Ontario, said in a Hockey Canada press release. “We tightened things up and then found a way to finish on a strong note.”

The series in Finland was part of Canada’s preparation for February’s Beijing Winter Olympics. It was also the national program’s first action outside North America since the 2019 World Championship in Espoo, Finland.

“We executed a lot of things we have been talking about,” Canadian assistant coach Alison Domenico said. “It was a great way to finish up the road trip.”

Canada has centralized 29 women in Calgary since July. The country’s 23-player Olympic roster is expected to be announced in late December.

Next up for the Canadians are games against the United States next Sunday in Kingston, Ontario, followed by a rematch 23 November in Ottawa.

“We’re really excited to play in Kingston, close to my hometown, so a lot of family can come watch,” said Bach, a native of Milton, Ontario. “With COVID-19, we haven’t had fans, so we’re all really excited to play on home soil and get to play against our rivals.

“We’re really looking forward to it.”
