N.A. Juniors Game Night: 12/21

World Junior Championships (exhibition)
Canada 7 vs. Finland 3
W Dana Tyrell, CAN: Did not play - out for tournament.
G Dustin Tokarski, CAN: Win, 14 saves on 17 shots

Tokarski got the full game for Canada, but was beaten early when Finland's Nestori Lahde caught St. Louis Blues super-prospect Alex Pietrangelo flat footed resulting in a semi-breakaway. Lahde put a high wrister over Tokarski's shoulder. Tokarski had little chance on the second goal as a Finn was left alone in front and after taking a pass from behind the net, potted a wrister over Tokarski's arm as Dustin tried to square to the shooter and eliminate space.

Tokarski will watch as Chet Pickard gets the next exhibition start for Canada against Slovakia.
