2017 World Para ice hockey Championships | Day 2 | Canada v Italy | Game Highlights

Day 2 game highlights of Canada versus Italy on day two of the 2017 World Para ice hockey Championships. Canada picked up right where it left off on Day 1, charging to a 7-0 victory over Italy, as Billy Bridges, Liam Hickey and Greg Westlake all stacked the scoreboard with two goals apiece. The reigning silver medalists have now outscored their opponents 16-0 in their first two games. "It's huge for us as a team, getting two big wins,” said Hickey who competed in wheelchair basketball at the Rio 2016 Paralympics and is now skating in his first World Para Ice Hockey Championships. “We wanted to come out strong and that's what we've done so far. It's been good for me because I'm getting comfortable now with this big of a stage. Now, it's time to move on for tomorrow's game against Sweden so that we'll be ready to go." Bridges found the net first against Italy off a pass from Hickey just 2:17 into the contest. Two minutes later, Westlake doubled Canada’s lead before Corbyn Smith and Hickey padded it with scores of their own to close out the opening period with a 4-0 lead. Italy brought in goalkeeper Gabriele Araudo in the second period to replace Santino Stillitano, and he stopped all seven shots that came his way over the first 15 minutes. But in the third period, Bridges, Hickey and Westlake all crashed the net successfully to extend Canada’s lead to seven and secure the team’s second consecutive shutout. Corbin Watson was the winning netminder. More information available at: www.gangneung.org Follow World Para ice hockey on Facebook, twitter and instagram: @Paraicehockey
