Peter Ceresnak and Slovakia were handed their second loss –their first in regulation– this morning when they lost to Canada by a score of 6-3. Slovakia jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period, but Canada stormed back with four goals in the second and never looked back.
Ceresnak was held off the board (not uncommon for the defensive defenseman), and finished with an even rating and two shots on goal. Ceresnak was on the ice for both of Slovakia’s first period goals, one coming on the powerplay. However, he was also on the ice for two of Canada’s four second period goals, both on the powerplay. Ceresnak was also on the ice for Canada’s sixth goal, this one at even strength.
Slovakia’s next game in pool play is on Sunday against Germany. The USA takes on Russia in 10 minutes (9am EST) on the NHL network.
