CROSBY AND MARCHAND LEAD CANADA TO GOLD AT THE WORLD CUP OF HOCKEY
Sep. 30, 2016

Just as they did throughout the entire tournament, Nova Scotia’s dynamic duo led the way for Canada in the biggest game of the 2016 World Cup of Hockey.

Trailing 1-0 with time ticking away in the final frame of their second game of a best-of-3 series with Team Europe, Sidney Crosby helped spark the Canadian comeback. With 2:53 remaining on the clock, he set-up Patrice Bergeron’s game-tying goal.

Then it was Hammonds Plains’ native Brad Marchand’s turn to step up. With just 46 seconds left in the period and Canada down a man, Marchand ripped home the tournament-winning goal past Team Europe netminder Jaroslav Halak.

Marchand’s game-winning tally was his fifth goal of the tournament. He also had three assists throughout the six games he played at the World Cup. Those eight points were good enough for second overall in scoring at the event. The only player with more points? Teammate and fellow Nova Scotian Sidney Crosby. The Cole Harbour native scored three goals and added  seven assists in his six World Cup games.

After the game, Crosby was named the most valuable player of the tournament.

Hockey Nova Scotia would like to congratulate both Sidney and Brad on their incredible performances at the World Cup. Thank you for continuing to inspire young hockey players across our province.
