Game Report 361 IIHF World Championship
PLAYED AT: AccorHotels Arena
Date: May 8, 2017
GAME NOTES: PICKARD STOPS 13, CANADA BLANKS BELARUS AT WORLDS JASON LA ROSE PARIS, France – Calvin Pickard (Winnipeg, Man./Colorado, NHL) turned aside all 13 shots he faced to earn the shutout, helping Canada’s National Men’s Team to a 6-0 win over Belarus as preliminary-round play continued Monday at the 2017 IIHF World Championship. The Canadians remain perfect through three games, and sit alone atop Group B. Nathan MacKinnon (Cole Harbour, N.S./Colorado, NHL) and Brayden Point (Calgary, Alta./Tampa Bay, NHL) had two goals apiece for Canada, Jeff Skinner (Toronto, Ont./Carolina, NHL) added a goal and two assists, and Travis Konecny (Clachan, Ont./Philadelphia, NHL) and Mitch Marner (Thornhill, Ont./Toronto, NHL) chipped in with two helpers each. Just as they did in each of their first two games, Canada struck early; Point one-timed a feed from Marner past goaltender Mikhail Karnaukhov just past the five-minute mark to give the Canadians all the offence they would need. MacKinnon, who had a hat trick in a win over Slovenia on Sunday, took over with a pair of goals in the second period. He doubled the Canadian advantage to 2-0 at 4:20 with an absolute bullet on the power play, wiring a wrist shot past a screened Karnaukhov, and jammed in the 3-0 goal at 15:21 after a centering pass from Skinner hit a skate and ricocheted into the crease. Skinner scored his third goal in three games at 7:01 of the third period, taking a pass from MacKinnon and roofing a shot from in close, and Claude Giroux (Hearst, Ont./Philadelphia, NHL) pushed the lead to 5-0 just a few seconds after a Canadian power play had ended, burying the rebound of a Skinner shot. Point capped the scoring with just over five minutes left, pulling the puck around a sliding defenceman before whipping a quick shot past Karnaukhov. Pickard was rarely tested in the Canadian goal; he made four saves in the first period, three in the second and six more in the third to record his second international shutout; he blanked France at worlds last year. Canada will enjoy a few days off before returning to the ice to meet the French on Thursday (2:15 p.m. ET/11:15 a.m. PT). The Canadians have won 10 of 12 all-time meetings with the co-hosts, including each of the last two years.
