Canada trounced Russia 6-1 in the final game of the World Championships today, taking home the gold medal.

Claude Giroux had a beauty even strength assist on Tyler Seguin’s goal, putting Canada up 4-0.

Things got weird on the fifth goal when Sidney Crosby set up Giroux for a slam dunk on the powerplay.

 

G’s one goal, one assist performance was good enough to be named the player of the gold medal game today after being named one of the three Canadian players of the tournament yesterday.

Sean Couturier didn’t show up on the score-sheet, but his fourth line with Cody Eakin and Tyler Ennis contributed two goals today.

Couturier wasn’t on the ice for an even strength goal against the entire tournament.

Brayden Schenn was a healthy scratch again today, having only appeared in two games during the World Championships (1 G, 1 A).

The USA won the bronze medal after dispatching Jakub Voracek and the Czech Republic 3-0 earlier in the day.

137 days till October.
