rielly600may18
It was a quiet day on the scoresheet for Leafs players at the 2014 World Hockey Championship but their respective countries both came away with much needed victories.

Canada beat Sweden 3-2 in overtime on a Ryan Ellis goal. With the win, Canada is in first place in Group A with just one group game remaining against Norway on Tuesday (5:45 am TSN). With a regulation victory over Norway on Tuesday, Canada would clinch the top seed in Group A.

Morgan Rielly picked up an assist on Kevin Bieksa’s 2nd period PP goal. It was Rielly’s third point of the tournament (one goal, two assists) and a +3 rating while averaging just over 7 minutes a game.

Nazem Kadri did not record a point in the win leaving him with three assists in six games playing an average of 13:48 per game. Netminder James Reimer was the backup on Sunday to former teammate Ben Scrivens.

Jake Gardiner and the USA had a 3-1 win over Finland and sit in second place in Group B with one game remaining on Tuesday against Germany (5:45 am TSN 2). Gardiner had one shot on goal in over 18 minutes on Sunday. He has two points (one goal, one assist) in six games while playing over 18 minutes a game.
