UFA, Russia: Ryan Strome scored two goals as Canada rallied to beat Slovakia 6-3 at the world junior ice hockey championships yesterday.
Goals in the first period from Marko Dano and Tomas Mikus put Slovakia 2-0 ahead before Strome narrowed the gap at 22:16 and Dano restored the two-goal margin on a power play midway through the second period.
But Morgan Rielly, Ty Rattia and Mark Schiefele put Canada 4-3 ahead after 40 minutes. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Strome then scored a goal each early in the third period to seal Canada’s second victory after a 9-3 win over Germany in the Group B opener on Wednesday.
Malcolm Subban made 25 saves for Canada, Adam Nagy stopped 24 for Slovakia.
Canada leads Group B with six points. Slovakia has one point and Germany has lost both its matches. The United States was scheduled to play Russia later on Friday.
Also Friday, the Czech Republic scored its first victory at the event, beating Finland 2-1 through first-period goals from Marek Hrbas and Tomas Hyka in Group A.
Teuvo Teravainen scored the only goal for Finland at 22:29 and pressed for an equalizer but Patrik Bartosak made 29 saves to secure the victory. Joonas Korpisalo had 17 saves for Finland.
