Canada wins 2nd straight with rout of Denmark


Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored twice and Connor McDavid chipped in with three assists as Canada cruised by Denmark 7-1 on Monday at the World Hockey Championship.

Josh Bailey and Mathew Barzal had two points apiece in a game which featured 13 different players on the scoresheet.

Bailey, Jordan Eberle, Ryan O'Reilly, Tyson Jost, and Aaron Ekblad rounded out the goal-scoring for Canada, which improved to 2-0-1-0, good enough for second place in Group B behind the Americans.

Curtis McElhinney was nearly perfect once again in his second straight start, allowing just the lone goal on 17 shots. Denmark's Jesper Jensen Aabo ruined McElhinney's bid for a second consecutive shutout, scoring at the 11:56 mark of the third period.

Canada will enjoy a two-day break before taking on Norway on Thursday.
