Let’s be honest: 2020 was a different year and we all know that nature was thrown out the window. But Saturday was Boxing Day and we finally had a casual event – Canada playing the World Juniors hockey game.
It was shown by the native country.
The Canadians beat the German team to win the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championships 16-2, with only 14 (nine forwards, five defenders and two goalscorers) able to list due to the positive tests of the Covit-19. Ideal for a beer league, not ideal for international matches against a powerhouse on the second night.
Unfortunately, the results suggest that.
When Sabers prospect John-Jason Peterka scored the Germans’ first goal, the Canadians scored 16 with a hat-trick and three assists from his future NHL teammate Dylan Cossen. Dawson Mercer, Beaten Krebs, Alex Newhook and Philip Tomasino fell twice against German goalscorers Arno Defense (four goals in 10 shots) and Jonas Kahr (12 for 34). Krebs’ first goal will be remembered for some controversy as the broadcast showed that it happened after the clock struck double zeros. DSN’s broadcasters, including Court Miller and Ray Ferraro, surprised everyone; The actual game clock was slightly different and Buck is said to have 0.2 left when he crossed the goal line.
In the end, Canada were ashamed of two goals in scoring 18 goals in a game, and while wondering whether or not they should leave a smile, the team focused on setting the table.
“This is our first game of the tournament. We want to establish our good habits and play the right way,” Cosense told Postcom. “I think we’m not going to change the way we play because we have a lot. We still want to act like an intimate game and pursue those good habits. We do not focus too much on the score, we focus on playing the right way.”
“In these competitions we can’t break away from our habits and move towards our goals,” Mercer said. “So, this new team is coming every day tomorrow. We have to keep advancing day by day, so we can be ready when the medal rounds come, we make sure we put our best foot forward. So we keep pushing and looking at ourselves, we’re good for the Canada team. We need to make sure we do. “
As the Canadians scored seven goals in the midfield, head coach Andre Durigni was overjoyed with the final goal.
“At one time we were the best at doing the little things … all the things you had to do to succeed,” he said. “We have to have the right habits. It’s not about speeding, it’s not about trying to impress anyone, it’s about playing the right way.”
In the first period of contact with the head of Germany’s John-Luka Schumacher the Canadian defender lost Braden Schneider, and a five-minute key rating (Peterka’s goal came during this power game) and a game misconduct. He has a good chance of missing out for a while after IIHF gives it another look.
In the end, for every player in line outside the goalie, Keaton Korsak, Connor Sari and Schneider scored at least one point in the game. Canada will face Slovakia, who beat Switzerland 1-0 in their first match.
