World Championships update

The IIHF World Championships in Slovakia moved to the qualification round today, and Canada beat the United States 4-3 in a shootout. Jack Johnson scored a second-period goal and played a team-high 28 minutes but was stopped by Canada goalie James Reimer in the shootout. Jonathan Bernier did not play for Canada. The United States plays France tomorrow, and Canada plays Norway.

This afternoon, the Czech Republic beat Slovakia 3-2. Michal Handzus did not record a point for Slovakia. Slovakia did, however, have an “all-former-Kings” goal, as Ladislav Nagy scored on assists from Lubomir Visnovsky and Jozef Stumpel.
