Team Canada beat Italy 7–1 at the World Cup in Latvia and can continue to hope to reach the quarter-finals despite a historic false start.
After losing to Latvia (0: 2), USA (1: 5) and Germany (1: 3), the Canadians have recently won three in a row: Norway (4: 2), Kazakhstan (4: 2) ) And Italy.
Andrew Mangiapen is representative of the ups and downs in Canadians. Since the Calgary Flames defender joined the team, the Canadians have only won. The 25-year-old attacking defender provided two goals and two assists against Italy.
Even after the third win, Canada’s starting position is fragile. The Canadian team will have to defeat world champions Finland in Tuesday lunch time to stay in the race. And Canadians can’t even be sure of success on the Finns who have already qualified for the quarter-finals in regular time.
Because if Kazakhstan wins against Norway and Germany get three points against Latvia and USA, then three points against Finland will not help Team Canada. Canada never missed the top eight of the title matches.
