Team Canada came into its third game of the round-robin in pool A at the U18 World Men's Hockey Championships with one win and one loss and really needed a win today.

They faced off against Team Czechia this morning at 7:30 our time and came out flying, scoring at the 1:55 mark of the opening period.

Then Canada started to get into penalty trouble with Czechia tying the game on a power play goal to end the period tied at one.

Canada was hit with another penalty just as the second period was underway allowing Czechia to score its second special teams goal of the game and take a 2-1 lead.

The Canadians battled back and scored their own power play goal just over one minute later to tie the game at two.

More penalties ensued for the Canucks and netminder Reid Dyck allowed another power play goal as Team Canada had to play catch up once again.

And catch up they did with Lucas Dragicevic scoring the tying goal on assists from former Okotoks Oiler Rieger Lorenz and David Goyette.

However, Czechia came right back to take a 4-3 lead less then a minute later.

Canada got back on the scoresheet to tie it up at 4 and took a 5-4 lead with just over five minutes left in the game.

Czechia kept fighting back and tied it up with less than three minutes to go sending the game into overtime.

The extra five minutes of overtime, which is not sudden-death, resulted in Czechia scoring to take a 6-5 lead and that was the final score.
