Latvia overpowered by Canada in hockey worlds opener

Latvia's IIHF World Championship tournament got off to a less than ideal start May 12 with a comprehensive defeat at the hands of a powerful Canadian team.

The Canadians ran out 6:0 winners, scoring two goals in each period.

In the next match, the Latvian national team will play against Slovakia on Saturday, and later in the group stage they will meet the Czech Republic, Norway, Slovenia, Kazakhstan and Switzerland. The four strongest teams in the group will advance to the quarter-finals. 

In the first game of the championship at Arena Riga earlier on Friday, the Czech national team defeated the Slovak national team. Meanwhile in Tampere, the Finns lost 1:4 to the USA, while the Swedes beat the Germans 1:0.

All games of the Latvian national team will be shown on and

In the group stage, points must be collected in seven games to be among the top four teams and continue the fight in the quarterfinals and then, hopefully the latter stages of the tournament.
