Game Story

CANADA BLANKS HUNGARY FOR SECOND PRE-NATIONS CUP WIN

DAVID BRIEN

ST. PÖLTEN, Austria – Victoria Bach (Milton, Ont./Boston University, HE) had two goals and two assists to pace the offence and lead Canada’s National Women’s Development Team to an 8-0 shutout win over Hungary in the second of its three pre-tournament games ahead of the 2016 Nations Cup.

Mélodie Daoust (Valleyfield, Que./McGill, RSEQ) added two goals and one assist and Cassandra Poudrier (Lachenaie, Que./Cornell University, ECAC) had one of each.

Amanda Leveille (Kingston, Ont./University of Minnesota, WCHA) had a quiet night in the Canadian goal, needing to make just three saves to record the shutout and the win.

Canada scored early and often in the first period, led by two goals in the first 4:34 from Bach.

Poudrier made it 3-0 at 10;40, and Daoust capped a busy opening frame at 13:27 as the Canadians peppered Hungarian netminder Aniko Nemeth with 22 shots in the first 20 minutes, compared to just one directed at Leveille.

Hanna Bunton (Belleville, Ont./Cornell University, ECAC) gave Canada its lone power play goal at 7:36 of the middle frame, before Daoust netted her second of the game only 18 seconds later.

Kelly Terry (Whitby, Ont./Toronto, CWHL) made it 7-0 at 8:29, capping a three-goals-in-53-seconds spurt.

The red-and-white representatives got the only goal of the third period off an unassisted effort from Shannon MacAulay (Mount Herbert, P.E.I./Clarkson University, ECAC) just past the eight-minute mark. Final shots on goal favoured the Canadians, 46-3.

Canada closes out its pre-tournament schedule Saturday against the Czech Republic in St. Pölten (7:30 a.m. ET/4:30 a.m. PT) before travelling to Füssen, Germany, to open the Nations Cup against Sweden on Monday.
