“We needed something to get us going, whether it was just a couple of good chances or scoring a goal.

Getting that first power-play goal, you could see a weight was lifted, and we started to play our game again. There were 20 minutes to go, and we’ve done a lot with 20 minutes before. It was just about getting out of our heads and trusting each other and winning battles.” The first period was scoreless and cautious, far more so than most games between these great rivals.

Canada ran into trouble midway through the period, taking three straight penalties.

But the Finns were unable to score, including on a 58-second 5-on-3 with defencemen Marc-Edouard Vlasic and Calvin de Haan both in the box.

With the win, Canada finishes the preliminary round with a tournament-best 19 points and a 6-0-0-1 record.

The Canadians will play co-host Germany in the quarter-finals in Cologne on Thursday.

De Haan said he wasn't nervous after he took the slashing penalty that put his team two men down. Guys get in lanes, block pucks and the less work that Cal (Pickard) has to do in net, the better.

We played pretty solid, I think.""When you go down 5-on-3 for a prolonged period of time when the game's in the balance, to kill it off was just a huge energy boost for us," added Cooper.

Jani Lajunen replied for the Finns to even the score at 1-1 just 22 seconds later.

The Canadian power play then went to work, with Marner setting up Parayko for his third goal of the tournament before scoring his second of the game to give Canada a 3-1 lead after 20 minutes.

It's impressive to watch him play."Colton Parayko, Brayden Point and Matt Duchene also scored for Canada.
