Canada shuts out Denmark for 5th straight victory

Sam Reinhart scored a pair of goals as Canada blanked Denmark 5-0 for its fifth straight win at the worlds on Monday.

Pierre-Luc Dubois, Jared McCann, and Jonathan Marchessault got Canada out to a quick 3-0 lead with tallies in the first nine minutes of the contest. Reinhart put the game away with a goal in the second frame and another in the third.

Mark Stone followed up his hat trick against Germany on Saturday with two assists against the Danes.

Carter Hart and MacKenzie Blackwood combined for Canada's second shutout of the tournament. After making 22 saves, Hart was replaced by the third-string netminder with nine minutes left in regulation in order to get Blackwood some crease time. The 22-year-old made two saves in relief.

Canada improved to 5-1 in the tournament with its only loss coming in its opening contest against Finland. The Canadians close out the preliminary stage Tuesday against the U.S.
