’Peg’s Micflikier keys Spengler win

  • Print

DAVOS, Switzerland — Winnipeg’s Jacob Micflikier and Byron Ritchie each scored twice as Canada advanced to the semifinals of the Spengler Cup with a 6-3 win over the Rochester Americans on Sunday.

Canada will play Swiss club HC Geneve-Servette in today’s semifinal. Geneve-Servette had an automatic berth to the semis after finishing first in its group.

The game will reunite Canada head coach Doug Shedden and Geneve-Servette head coach Chris McSorley, who was an assistant coach for Canada when it won last year’s Spengler Cup.

"(McSorley’s) team’s playing a more North American style of hockey. They chip pucks in and they’re a hard-forechecking team that drives the net hard, so I think you’re going to see similar styles," Shedden said.

Derrick Walser and Alexandre Giroux also scored for Canada, while Ahren Spylo added three assists.

Alexander Hutchings, Dan Catenacci and Joel Armia scored for Rochester, which is the American Hockey League affiliate of the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres.

Ex-Winnipeg Jet Chris Mason got the start in goal for Canada and gave up three goals over 22 shots over the first 40 minutes. He left after the second period with an injured groin.

Host HC Davos will face CSKA Moscow in the other semifinal. Moscow beat HC Vitkovice Steel 3-2 on Sunday to advance.
