Canada Hockey vs Czechia final in 2023 World Juniors
A few minutes later, Canada had a power play opportunity to score, but were unsuccessful, which ultimately cost them. Charlie Stramel’s shot was blocked at 10:30, but Kenny Connors was waiting for the rebound and he buried it to the right of the Canadian goal with no hesitation.
Canada would finally reduce the deficit in half, and Connor Bedard would have to make it happen. Bedard scored the 2-1 goal to give Canada some hope after Ethan Del Mastro found the 2023 draft prospect close to the goal.
With a chip on their shoulder going into the second, the Canadians capitalized on it. Logan Stankoven tied it 2-2 only 47 seconds into the period by getting the final touch on the puck close to the goal. When Adam Fantilli, a 2023 draft prospect, slammed the puck past the goal line from close range at 25:46, Canada took its first lead of the game.
