A report card look at Team Canada
INNSBRUCK, Austria (CP) - A report card look at Team Canada after Thursday's 5-4 quarter-final victory over Slovakia at the IIHF world men's championship:
Simon Gagne, A-plus: Canada's best player at both ends of the ice. Two huge goals.
Rick Nash, A: Dangerous on every shift, intercepted clearing attempt to set up Canada's third goal and a masterful pass from behind the net to set up the fourth goal. Team-high six shots on goal.
Dany Heatley, A: Showed his MVP form with a big-time effort, goal and assist and a threat throughout.
Ryan Smyth, B-plus: Captain Canada shows up for big games. His first-period goal energized the team.
Shane Doan, B-plus: Very noticeable on the checking line, created chances and pounded the Slovaks.
Brendan Morrison, B: Created chances for linemates Smyth and Heatley.
Brenden Morrow, B: Strong on the forecheck and a physical presence.
Scott Walker, B: Terrorized Slovak blue-line with thunderous hit, also plowed into goalie Jan Lasak.
Joe Thornton, B: Horrible giveaway leading to Slovakia's fourth goal but redeemed himself with the game-winner.
Patrick Marleau, C: Pretty pass to set up Smyth for Canada's second goal.
Kirk Maltby, C: High-flying Slovaks difficult to check; minus-2 rating.
Kris Draper, C: Took a bad penalty to put Canada down two men and allow Slovakia to tie the game 3-3 but redeemed himself with a huge shot block during a late Slovak power play.
Mike Fisher, no grade: Did not play.
Dan Boyle, B-plus: Booted the transition game with pinpoint passing.
Wade Redden, B-plus: Solid all-around game, for the most part contained the high-flying Slovak wingers.
Scott Hannan, B: Tough physical game and smart decisions with the puck.
Chris Phillips, C: The most ice time for him in the tournament and he didn't look out of place. Looked confident.
Robyn Regehr, D: Got caught flat-footed on opening goal and seemed to struggle with Slovak speed on the outside.
Ed Jovanovski, D: Also caught on first goal and still not hitting his stride after not playing all year.
Sheldon Souray, no grade: Did not play.
Martin Brodeur, C: Should have perhaps had second and fourth goals but his sensational penalty shot save may have won the game for Canada.
