Raddych scores as Canada throws a blowout
Taylor Raddych scores four goals as Canada blows out Latvia 10-2. Canada had a sluggish start, even had seven penalties in the first half of the game. they end up outshooting Latvia 35-25. Raddych tied a Canadian record, joining Brayden Schenn (2011) Simon Gagne (1999) and Mario Lemieux (1983) for scoring four goals in the game. also the last time Canada scored 10 goals in a game was five years ago tonight against Denmark. meanwhile earlier the U.S. beat Russia 3-2. the U.S. and Canada have 9 pts each. they face each other on New Years eve for top spot. Russia is third with 3pts. Slovakia and Latvia have none and play each other tomorrow. in group A Sweden beat Finland 3-1 and will finish first in group B with one game left. they have 9 pts. they also have one 36 straight round robin games (i think it's that many). Denmark andCzech Rep have five points each and will be in the quarter finals as well. Switzerland is 4th with 2 and defending champs Finland has zero and is in danger of being the first champion to go into the relegation round in this current format. tomorrow's sked has Denmark vs Switzerland and Latvia vs Slovakia.
