Jonathan Toews, Canada Win World Cup of Hockey

After 57 minutes of frustration, Canada finally broke through and won the 2016 World Cup of Hockey in dramatic fashion.

Patrice Bergeron tipped a Brent Burns shot past Jaroslav Halak to tie the game at 17:07 into the third period while Canada was on a power play. Moments after the goal, Drew Doughty was sent to the box for the final two minutes of regulation and Europe attacked.

But while killing the Doughty penalty, Jonathan Toews carried the puck across the offensive zone and dropped a perfect pass to Brad Marchand who scored his fourth goal of the tournament.

The short-handed goal held up as the game-winner.

Toews skated 18:14 with three hits in the victory, adding a World Cup of Hockey championship to his Hall of Fame resume. Corey Crawford served as the backup to Carey Price.

For Europe, Marian Hossa had a good tournament and looked fast and strong the entire final. He played 20:42 with four shots on net in the second game of the final. In the second period, Hossa was sent to the box for hooking… Toews.

Sidney Crosby was named tournament MVP.

  1. Hossa got robbed by Price. Without that play by Toews bringing the puck into Europe’s zone followed by the no look pass to Marchand Team Canada does not win this thing.

    Glad its over. Is it October yet?

  2. Great move by Toews and 1 game less to play …good for the Hawks …now lets start the season …..really want to see the new kids play and help the team for many years..hope we can find another Pearl similar to Panarin .
