Team Canada won their second straight game at the World Hockey Championship on Monday as they defeated the Czech Republic 4-3.

Leafs netminder James Reimer started for Canada and turned aside 31 shots to pick up his first win in the 2014 tournament. Defenceman Morgan Rielly scored a power play goal for his first point of the tournament and it would be the eventual game winner as the Canada allowed two third period goals to hang on for the win. Rielly played just 3:30 in the game as the seventh defeneman.

Nazem Kadri was held off the scoresheet and has one assist in three games so far.

Canada is in first place in Group A with seven points after three games.

Two Leafs faced off in the other late game on Monday as Nik Kulemin and Russia crushed Jake Gardiner and the USA 6-1.  Kulemin has had a strong tournament so far as he recorded his second goal of the competition in the victory and has three points (two goals) in three games.

Jake Gardiner was held scoreless and has one goal in three games. He played just over 19 minutes in Monday’s loss.

Russia remains undefeated and in first place in Group B with a 3-0-0-0 record.

All five of the Leafs players and their countries are not in action on Tuesday. Russia faces Kazakhstan on Wednesday while Canada and the USA are back on the ice Thursday against Denmark and Latvia respectively.
