France defeated Canada by a score of 3-2 in a shootout at the World Championships. The upset – and what an upset it was – could be credited to Stephane Da Costa’s two goals and by an amazing performance from Cristobal Huet.
Huet’s best save of the game was this gem on Canada’s Morgan Rielly.

Canada and France took to the ice in the first game of the 2014 World Championships. With Canada winning 7-2 in the last meeting between the two countries, there wasn’t a lot of debate on who the favourite was heading into the contest on Friday.

Kevin Woodley (@KevinisInGoal) of In Goal Magazine tweeted this week that former Chicago goalie Cristobal Huet told French news outlet L’Equipe he’s been in contact with Vancouver and Los Angeles about a return to the NHL.
It’s not much of a surprise that Vancouver was mentioned. They have a goalie...
