Canada, Sweden Win In Mannheim
MORE INFO
By Glenn Odebralski for floridapanthers.com

Canada and Sweden both took the play to their opponents in their first game of the qualifying rounds on Friday in Germany.

Canada rolled to an easy 12-1 victory over Norway in the early game in Mannheim while Jacob Markstrom turned away 19 shots in a 4-2 victory over Latvia in the night cap in Mannheim.

CANADA 12 - Norway 1
It is the tournament's biggest blowout to date as Canada thumped Norway 12-1.

The funny thing is that it was 1-1 after the first 20 minutes of play.

And better yet was that Norway scored the game's first goal. Jonas Holos got the Norwegians on the board just 1:35 into the game as he surpised St Louis netminder Chris Mason with a quick wrist shot.

Down early, Canada tied the score at the 13:09 mark as Atlanta's Evander Kane scored on Ruben Smith.

1-1 after one, Canada really went to work in the second period. There they put seven goals past Smith. Anaheim's Corey Perry scored 3:51 into the second on a Canadian power play for what would be the game-winner. Canada would then pot six goals in a 6:36 span. Calgary's Mark Giordano made it 3-1 with 6:48 left in the second, NY Islanders sniper John Tavares scored on the power play with 3:18 left, Atlanta's Rich Peverley with 2:33, Tampa's Steve Downie with 1:44, Carolina's Ray Whitney with 54 seconds and Kane with his second with 12 seconds left.

Get that all?

Canada added four more in the final period of play. Edmonton prospect and World Junior great Jordan Eberle scored 39 seconds in, Tavares scored his second and third of the game at at the 5:57 mark and the 9:18 mark while Colorado's Matt Duchene scored a minute later (10:18 mark) to close out the scoring.

SWEDEN 4 - Latvia 2
Quick scoring got the game going, while a late goal secured a 4-2 victory for Sweden as they defeated Latvia in Mannheim.

It was a high scoring first as four of the game's six goals were scored in the opening period.

Before the game was even a minute old, both teams had found the back of the net. Edmonton prospect Magnus Paajarvi Svensson scored his third of the tournament, beating Edgars Masalskis 31 seconds in. Latvia would come right back on the next shift and Martins Karsums beat Panthers prospect Jacob Markstrom with 56 seconds off the clock.

Sweden would score the next two when Phoenix prospect Oliver Ekman Larsson blasted a shot from the point past Masalskis 5:08 into the first. Michael Nylander then made it 3-1 with 5:30 left in the period.

After the fast start, the two teams went through a scoreless second. Masalskis stopped all 13 shots while Markstrom turned away seven shots in the frame.

With 20 minutes left to play, Latvia made it interesting at the 5:01 mark. Karsums netted his second of the game by beating Markstrom .

Sweden would thwart a potential comeback and get some breathing room when Tony Martensson scored with two minutes left to put it at 4-2.

Markstrom registered his second victory of the tournament while turning away 19 shots.
