Team Canada has won its second straight game at the Women’s World Hockey Championship in Herning, Denmark. Just like their win over Finland on Thursday, Canada beat Switzerland on Saturday by the score of 4-1.

Canada outshot Switzerland 46-8 in the contest. The Canadian star was Canadian Olympic gold medalist Sarah Fillier of Georgetown, Ontario, who scored two goals. Fillier, who won the gold medal for Canada at the 2022 Olympic Winter Games in Beijing, scored at 10:15 of the first period and then at 9:40 of the second period to put Canada up 2-0.

One other Canadian player had a multi-point game for Canada in the three-goal win over Switzerland. That was Canadian Olympic gold medalist Blayre Turnbull of Stellarton, Nova Scotia. The other Canadian goal scorer was Emily Clark of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Turnbull and Clark also won a gold medal for Canada at the 2022 Olympic Winter Games in Beijing.

The big takeaway from Canada’s first two games from the Women’s World Hockey Championship is the fact that Canada was only a +6 in the goals for and against ratio. The United States also have two wins after their first two games, but are a +15. They defeated Japan 10-0 and Finland 6-1. Canada will next play Japan on Sunday and then the United States on Tuesday.
