The Winnipeg Jets had a hard time staying out of the penalty box tonight, and that was an issue right from the beginning.
The Jets struggled on the penalty-kill, and the Arizona Coyotes were able to score three power-play goals on the night, and the Jets would lose by a score of 4-1 Thursday.

Canada. Russia. Whenever these two teams meet, magic seems to follow. And boy was tonight magical - a star-studded Canadian side facing off against a very underrated Russian group with a hot goalie.
A perfectly set stage.

Canada's performance against Russia in the past few World Juniors tournaments leaves a lot to be desired. Fortunately, every year the roster is completely turned over and there isn't any reason to believe that trend has to continue. Nonetheless, the Russian's still have the same head coach in Valeri Bragin that has kept the Russians so damn competitive over the past half decade.
The Russians have forsaken their stereotypical enigmatic roster, and have opted for a blue collar, lunch pail, physical lineup that Hockey Canada would be proud to dress. Canada will have its first true test of the tournament against its historical and greatest rival.
