Anthony Mantha, Shea Theodore, Jonathan Marchessault, Anthony Cirelli and Troy Stecher each added a goal as Hockey Canada battled back from 2-0 and 4-2 holes. Canada did take its first lead late in the second on Stecher’s goal from the halfboard that chased Slovakia’s starting netminder Patrik Rybar for the third period.

Despite the high-scoring affair, Canada’s goaltender Matt Murray played well, stopping 26 of 31 shots with the majority of goals against coming off rebounds. Adam Laska, a 19-year-old who went undrafted in 2018, scored two goals, and former NHL winger Ladislav Nagy – who last played in the NHL in 2008 and is the oldest player in the tournament at 39 – had one for the hometown team.

Canada next faces France on Thursday at 10:15 a.m. ET.​
