World Juniors 2014 Game Thread: Canada vs Slovakia

Bruce Bennett

After a disappointing loss to the Czech Republic, Canada is in desperate need of a rebound win against their former countrymen in Slovakia.

Team Canada desperately needs to get rounding into form, and Slovakia may provide the combination of a weak enough team that there isn't much danger, and the offensive ability to burn them if they play sloppy.

The player to watch on the Slovakian team is pint sized Montreal Canadiens prospect Martin Reway (#10), who has 6 points already in just two games.

Trying to stop him will be fellow Habs prospect Zachary Fucale, who will get his first start for Canada at the World Juniors, and hopefully provide superior goaltending to what they've received from Jake Paterson.

Make sure to also keep an eye on Charles Hudon (#10), who was one of Canada's best players in the loss against the Czechs, and should have secured his spot on the top line with Jonathan Drouin and Anthony Mantha.

The game starts at 11am EST on TSN.
