France takes the lead against Canada! :shock:

Score tied at 1-1 by the end of the first though. Hodgson and Garrison assisting Schenn on Canada's goal.

I think it'd be fair to expect more of Canada, but then again, France has Cristobal Huet in goal, which I guess helps bring them closer to the real hockey nations.

Huet is currently playing in the Swiss league. They also have three players in the Finnish league, one (Bellemare) in the SHL (Skellefteå), one (DaCosta) in the AHL (Binghampton) and one (Roussel) in the NHL (Dallas).

I assume once the Canadians get over their jet lag they should wrap this up though.
France should not be a contender in this tournament.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Latvia toppled Finland.

Garrison best in points on the Canadian team so far. One assist against France and now another on the equaliser against Slovakia. 1-1 after two periods. Time to wake up soon?
