In Group B, Canada beat defending champion Finland 5-3 in its toughest game yet at the tournament. The Americans were coming off a 5-3 victory over Belarus on Thursday and improved to 3-1-1 in Group A. Tampa Bay Lightning forward J.T. Brown opened the scoring 4:12 into the second period. Kazakhstan's Konstantin Pushkaryov tied it four minutes later on a power play.

Canada twice overcame two-goal deficits in improving its record to 4-0-1 and taking over first place in Group H. The winning goal came from Evander Kane of the Winnipeg Jets a little more than six minutes into the third period. He took a pass from linemate Corey Perry of Anaheim and beat Kari Lehtonen with a quick shot.
