United States downs Canada 9-3 in para hockey series
ELMIRA, ONTARIO — Canada's para hockey team lost 9-3 to the United States in Friday's second game of a three-game series.
Brody Roybal's hat trick and assist for the U.S. gave him a career 100 goals and 200 career points.
Canada dropped the first game of the series 1-0 at Woolwich Memorial Arena in Elmira, Ont.
Tyler McGregor of Forest, Ont., scored a pair of power-play goals for Canada.
James Dunn of Wallacetown, Ont., contributed a goal and an assist in the loss.
Goaltender Jean-Francois Huneault of Saint-Eustache, Que., stopped 27 shots.
“Our power play was one of the bright spots of our game tonight," McGregor said.
"I thought we moved the puck well and our communication was amazing. We were making really good plays and it was obviously nice to get those two (goals), especially with both of them coming on the power play.
"Unfortunately, it was a tough loss, but we can take a lot from this game and implement it tomorrow.”
Game 3 of the series is Saturday.
