When Team Germany scored 94 seconds into their game against Team Canada Thursday morning, most Canadian fans were surprised. But the Canadian team recovered and rolled over the Germans 7-2. Led by Anthony Mantha’s three goals and Jonathan Drouin’s three assists, the Canadians woke up after giving up the first goal and played a strong game at both ends.

“We absolutely wanted that win and I think we worked hard enough to get it,” Mantha told TSN’s Nabil Karim. “And on my side, three goals, I couldn’t have asked for better today.”

Josh Anderson opened the scoring for Canada, tying the game at the 6:21. Canada’s NHL defenceman, Matt Dumba, skated around all the Germans and sent a low shot on goal. The puck bounced off of goalie Marvin Cupper and onto Anderson’s stick, making it easy for him to jam it into the net.
