Hockey Canada Cup G2: CAN 7 - SWE 0

On the heels of Finland's upset of the US, Team Canada didn't leave anything to chance, defeating Sweden 7-0 while outshooting them 38-6.
“We had people texting us to tell us the scores and when we'd just come out of the team meeting and heard it,” Canadian head coach Melody Davidson said. “You could see in their faces they were shifting gears a little bit here to remember to not take it for granted.”
Badger blueliners Carla MacLeod and Meaghan Mikkelson each had 1 assist.

About Sweden's play last night, Canadian forward Hayley Wickenheiser said:
"They weren't very tight in their zone or organized in anything, but I know that's not the best we've seen from them or the best we will see."
