World Juniors Game Night: 12/23/10

Canada 5 vs. Finland 2 (Pre-competition)

RW Carter Ashton, CAN: 0-0-0, 0 PIM
RW Brett Connolly, CAN: Did not play.

Canada was down 1-0 after one period and tied 2-2 after two before exploding for three goals in the third to defeat Finland in their final pre-competition match. Ashton didn't hit the scoresheet and Connolly apparently missed the game with an injury. His status for Canada's official roster named December 25 is up in the air. Canada will open tournament play December 26.
