The guy in the picture with the sign was at the World Juniors too. Do you think we’ll see him at every Canadian game? And if so, how did he get those tickets?
It took a bit, after going to the dressing room tied at zero after one period. But things began to come together for the Canadians in the second with goals by Jerome Iginla, Dany Heatley, and Mike Richards, and soon it was all Canada against an outmatched Norwegian squad who could do nothing about it. And in the end, the scoreboard read 8-0 after Ryan Getzlaf, Heatley again, Iginla with his second, Corey Price, and Iginla again with his third, capped it off for Canada.
I’d like to announce here and now that I predicted the score. My wife asked before the game how I thought it would go, and I said 8-0 Canada. I know, I know, I sound like Don Cherry. But it’s true!
Seriously. I feel like Kreskin.
It was a slow start and strong finish for Canada. Next it’s Switzerland, with Habs connection Mark Streit, even though he hasn’t played for Montreal for two years. Any Habs fan will know what I mean.
