Nathan MacKinnon scored a goal and added an assist in Canadas lone world championship tune-up, blanking Switzerland 4-0 on Tuesday in Zurich. Matt Read opened the scoring in the first five minutes of play, taking a nice feed from Jonathan Huberdeau to put Canada up 1-0. Ryan Ellis gave Canada a two-goal lead with his marker late in the opening frame. With 1:13 remaining in the first period, Canadas Nazem Kadri was hit from behind by Simon Moser. With Thomas Ruefenacht already in the penalty box for slashing; Canada was awarded a two-man advantage. They couldnt score before the buzzer went on the period, but opened the second with 1:13 remaining with the two extra men. Kyle Turris took advantage of that and made it 3-0 just 27 seconds into the period; MacKinnon and Kadri assisting on the play. The third period saw Switzerland given three power play opportunities that they couldnt produce on, before MacKinnon sealed the victory by scoring in the final two minutes of the game. James Reimer got the start in goal for Canada but was pulled midway through the second period in favour of Ben Scrivens. Head coach Dave Tippet planned to use both goalies equally in the game and said he chose Reimer as the starter based on the number of NHL games hes played. Reimer and Scrivens shared a 23-save shutout, while Ellis was named Player of the Game for Canada. Tippett wont name his starter for Game 1 (Canada vs. France, Friday at 9:30am et/6:30am pt on TSN) until Thursday but added that with back-to-back games to open the tournament, he would split the duties. MacKinnon was one of three players added to Canadas roster on Sunday, along with Brayden Schenn and Matt Read. Canadas roster now includes 23 players: three goaltenders, seven defencemen and 13 forwards.
