It all started well for the Canadian team when Tyler Toffoli opened the scoring in the second half, assisted by Scott Laughton and Jack Quinn. The former Canadians were also very happy to finally hit the target.

“I feel like I had a million chances in this tournament and even though Krause may have blocked my shot, I’m going to score that goal. It feels good to get first place here, I’m going to try to use it as motivation for the rest. Hopefully I can continue to create chances and keep an eye on the opposition net.” I want to keep scoring goals.”

Samuel Montembolt blocked 23 of the 26 shots he faced in the loss. However, his coach believes the players can do better against him.

“I think we showed a little bit of tension and weren’t as aggressive as we wanted to be. In the third period we were more intense and quicker on the fore check, which allowed us to create more chances, which is positive. We have to focus on our defensive game, because that side will be Decisive between now and the end of the tournament. You have to give credit to the Swiss, who worked really hard. It was a tough game,” Turenne said.
