Good morning, folks. Sounds like Russia will have to change to sweaters for the game, according to Hockey Canada. Canada is the home team.
I just watched that Griffin Reinhart play again and it's tough to tell, but it looks like there was contact between the sticks. Doesn't look good though when the stick hits the American in the face. It's the always tough job of determining intent.
Makarov for Russia and Binnington for Canada in the nets.
Drouin with Strome and Scheifele
Nice shot/pass attempt there for Hamilton gave Canada a chance.
Russia is up 1-0 as shot along the ice sneaks under Binnington's pad. Not a good goal.
Wrister by Nugent Hopkins for a goal and Canada is down 2-1.
This one's getting chippy.
