Le Canada se laisse dépasser par la Russie

VANCOUVER – Pavel Shen scored at 11:00 in the third twenty, and Russia has defeated Canada 2-1 on Monday, ending thus in the first rank of the group A, world championship junior hockey.

Unbeaten in four matches, the Russians will have them as future rivals, the Slovaks, in the quarterfinals.

Canada (3-1-0) squandered five numerical advantages. The country is going to compete with Finland in the quarterfinals Wednesday.

“They are a good team. They play hard,” said head coach canadian Tim Hunter.

“We gave them a little too much leeway, because we have not played as well as we are able”, he added.

Shen was chosen in the seventh round by the Boston Bruins, in 2018. Its purpose has been of the highest caliber: he grabbed the puck in the middle of the ice and has bypassed two rivals on the right flank, before making a breakthrough successful at the net.

It was the first time that Canada faced a deficit since the beginning of the tournament.

Grigory Denisenko has also foiled Michael DiPietro, who made 17 saves. Pyotr Kochetkov has stopped 21 shots.

Cody Glass gave the lead 1-0 in Canada at 2:20 in the first third. Choice of first round of the Golden Knights, in 2017, the Manitoba 19-year-old has scored with the aid of a shooting spot, the result of a reversal caused by Owen Tippett.

“This was a very good game, that’s for sure, but I think we need to find a way to eliminate them from our games the drops regime”, analyzed Tippett.

“I don’t think we have played a match of 60 minutes. So, if we can find a way to fix these cuts regime, we should be ok.”

Russia leveled the score 3:01 later with Morgan Frost in the dungeon, to defeat from behind.

Denisenko, a hope of the Panthers, has created the deadlock with a shot on reception, from the right circle. One of the accomplices was Vitali Kravtsov – the best pointer of his own in the tournament, with two goals and three assists.

Frost, a hope of the Flyers, is the best pointer of the tournament with four goals and three assists, tied with the hope of the Montreal canadiens Ryan Poehling, of the U.s. team.

“I think we played a better second (period) and a better third, said Maxime Comtois. There was more urgency in our actions. It was a tough loss, but we must turn the page.”
