Where’s my Staples button?
Because that was easy.
Maybe too easy for Team Canada in their World Cup of Hockey opener on Saturday night.
They absolutely muzzled the Czech Republic 6-0 at the ACC.
Habs star Carey Price made 27 saves for a neat and tidy shutout, picking up where he left off his international hockey career that ended with a gold medal around his neck in Sochi, Russia.
Opposing teams must think Canada’s lineup is unfair.
Crosby, Toews, Stamkos, Tavares, Bergeron, Perry, Getzlaf, Thornton, Doughty, Weber, with Holtby and Crawford on the bench.
How in the world can these guys lose?
The answer, which is usually the case in these tournaments, is goaltending.
The only way I can see Canada running into a wall at the World Cup is if they stumble across a red hot goalie.
Mike Richter was that guy in the 1996 World Cup.
Dominik Hasek did it to them at the ’98 Nagano Olympics.
There have been very few in between and I don’t see any over the next couple of weeks.
