GB suffer heavy loss to Canada
Great Britain suffered a second consecutive loss at the top of the standings. Canada scored eight unanswered goals in an eight-goal game
Anthony Mantha scored two goals and helped three while Pete Russell's men did their best against one of the world's top teams, but the gap in the class was within everyone's reach.
It took the Canadians three minutes to take the first step when Mathieu Joseph broke the point shot with the help of Adam Henrique.
Goal number two followed ten minutes later when Jared McCann burst in from Mantha, slipping his pass for who should let Ben Bowns beat and the score was already tilted in one direction.
Kyle Turris added a third early in the second period while Tim Billingsley's skate was blowing at one point untimely, giving Mantha a free pass in the widest position, where the Nashville Predators applied the finish.
Canada scored four unanswered through Dylan Strome with Dante Fabbro, bringing to five the number of points scored in the last embers of the second period.
Turris' second goal in the first minute of the third period, thanks to extra goals from Sean Couturier and Mantha, his second goal having more than ensured a great day of work.
Bowns, who valiantly defied, yielded to Jackson Whistle in the last ten minutes, but the game had already disappeared since Canada expiated their defeat against Slovakia on day one.
