Canada crushes Russia to win world championship

May 18, 2015

Canada won the world ice hockey championship on Sunday (April 17) with a dominating 6-1 win over Russia  as three quick second period goals helped the team filled with NHL stars finish the tournament undefeated.


Canada, which conceded only one goal in the knockout round, won their first world championship since 2007.

The Canadians outshot the defending champions 37-12 and limited opportunities with the kind of defense that led them to gold at the Sochi Winter Olympics.
