Then, at the top of the second period, Dominic Larocque scored the game’s first goal. It’s his third of the tournament. Laroque seized the opportunity to score when Norwegian forward Ole Bjarte Austevoll took a penalty.
Adam Dixon, who CBC Sports analyst Rob Snoek nicknamed ‘Duck Dynasty’ for his long, shaggy beard, scored the other two goals before the end of the third period. (Dixon scored two goals and two assists against Sweden yesterday.)
The most spectacular goal by far was the last one scored by Marc Dorion in the final 22 seconds of the game. It was his first goal of the tournament.
With today’s second win, the Canadian team tops the Group A standings, with 6 points. The United States leads Group B.
Canada has Monday off before facing the Czech Republic on Tuesday. The Czechs are currently the second-place team in Group A.
