Team Canada made their first statement of the Super Series on Monday, no game is over until the final whistle and patience will pay off over sixty minutes.
The Canadians fell behind in the first period by a score of 2-0 and then turned the game around completely in the following forty minutes. Despite a number of short handed situations through the game, the Canadians managed to not only stay in the first game of the eight game series, but reclaim it and take the 4-2 victory away from the Russians in front of their boitsterous home crowd in Ufa.
It's a solid start for the Canadians, who managed to get over any nerves after twenty minutes and knuckled down to the job at hand.
