Rolling Over the Germans

05/10/2008 at 10:18pm EDT

World Hockey Championships: Canada 10 - Germany 1

Eric Staal scored four goals, Martin St. Louis had five assists, and the remaining goals were scored by Jason Spezza, Dany Heatley, Patrick Sharp, Derek Roy and Mike Green. And don’t leave out Dan Hamhuis who inadvertently helped Germany get on the board by putting the puck past his own goalie.

All and all, not a fun day for Germany, as noted by their coach Uwe Krupp:

“Our team was outmatched in just about every aspect of the game,” Krupp said. “I think it was a sobering experience for everybody. Thank God you don’t have too many days like this.”

Courtesy of TSN, video highlights of the game can be seen here, and a complete schedule and results for all teams here. Team Canada’s next game is Monday against Finland. Team USA plays the Finns on Sunday.

Note: Dion Phaneuf sends a special message of encouragement and congrats to his Canadian mates. What a guy…
