Canada Ends Preliminaries With Comeback Win

Although it was a quiet day for Florida Panthers players at the 2013 IIHF World Hockey Championship Monday, eight teams made noise in some of their last games of the preliminary round.  In Group H, Latvia beat France and Russia scored eight goals in its win against Austria, while in Group S, Canada beat Slovenia in overtime and Denmark beat Belarus.

The last round of preliminaries will take place Tuesday, with quarterfinals beginning on Thursday.

Canada 4 - Slovenia 3

STOCKHOLM, Sweden – Canada came close to losing its last game of preliminaries against Slovenia just after clinching a spot in the quarterfinals, but came back in an overtime nail-biter to win 4-3 thanks partly due to Panthers defenseman Brian Campbell.

Slovenia scored twice early in the first period thanks to 24-year-old Jan Urbas who scored both goals with assists from 29-year-old David Rodman. The first goal was scored just over 5 minutes into the game, and the first period ended without Canada on the scoreboard.

Colorado’s Matt Duchene, 22, fought back for Canada with a goal 2:01 into the second period to make it 1-2, and less than a minute later his teammate, Tampa Bay’s Steven Stamkos, 23, scored again making it 2-2.

Five minutes later, Slovenian Tomaz Razingar answered that goal with one of his own, bringing the score to 2-3.

Dallas’s Brenden Dillon knotted it once again, this time at three 7:09 into the third period, ending regulation in a tie.

But Stamkos gave Canada the victory with a goal 3:36 into overtime, with the help of Campbell, who picked up the second assist on the game-winner. With this win and a Switzerland loss Tuesday, Canada would secure the top seed in Group S.

Campbell picked up his second assist of the tournament on 23:46 of ice time for Canada. The Cats blueliner finished the preliminaries with a team-high plus-7 in seven games.
