    The Czechs are going to have a 2-man advantage to end the game as Clark Bishop is called for tripping, taking the skates out from under a Czech player.
    Canada is now getting a penalty, it's Michael Dal Colle but I didn't see it or hear the announcement. Doesn't matter at this point.
    A Czech 2-on-1 and Bilia has to slide across to make a nice pad save. He hasn't had a lot of work this period.
    Ekbland with a beautiful set-up to Audette but Vanecek makes a great glove save. He's done all he can today. That would have been a 4th assist for Ekblad on the power play if not for that save.
    Filip Pyrochta put the clutches on Brendan Lemieux then let him go, but the ref calls it anyway. At this point, I'd have probably let it go, but anyway Canada goes once more to the power play.
    Canada's Jayce Hawryluk called for interference at the Czech blue line. Power play Czech Republic.
    Pavel Zacha is called for slashing in his own zone and Canada is headed back to the power play.
    The Czech Republic with a chance on the power play as Hayden Fleury gets called for kneeing in front of his own net
    Goal for Team Canada!
    Canada's power play strikes again, 4/6 if you count the penalty shot goal. DANIEL AUDETTE finishes off the play. Assists: Brayden Point, Aaron Ekblad (3a).
    The Czech Republic's Filip Pyrochta is going off for interference. He lined up Roland McKeown in the neutral zone but when the pass missed McKeown he was committed and couldn't avoid it.
    Goal for Team Canada!
    On the penalty shot, SPENCER WATSON fires it off the crossbar and in to make it 3-0 Canada.

    As a penalty shot goal does not cancel a power play, the Canadian power play has another 1:13 to work with.
    Now Spencer Watson is tripped heading in on goal and is being awarded a penalty shot.
    Czech captain Dominik Masin thwarts a Canadian chance by hauling down Jake Virtanen. Canadians back to the power play, they're 2/3.
    Just after the Czechs kill the penalty they are going to the power play as Carl Neill hauled down Jakub Vrana down low.
    Mad scramble in the dying seconds of the penalty, Fleury and McKeown both fire rolling pucks wide with traffic in front.
    Now a power play to Canada as Ondrej Miklis is called for interference. The potent Canadian PP is back to work and, of course, Ekblad on the point.
    The Czechs are getting a power play as Jayce Hawryluk is called for interference in the attacking zone.
    Goal for Team Canada!
    The Czechs don't seem to have an answer to Aaron Ekblad on the point on the power play. Expecting shot, he finds HAYDEN FLEURY for the goal this time. Canada 2/2 on the power play. Assist Aaron Ekblad.
    Another shot from the point by Ekblad, this one was high and I don't think Vanecek saw it, but it hit him and went into the corner.
    Now with :01 left in the power play the Czechs are called for too many players on the ice. They did not get a shot on the power play and after 1 second Canada will go to the PP for the second time. The bench minor is being served by Jakub Vrana.
    The Czech Republic now going to the power play for the first time as Clark Bishop pulls down a Czech forward who had the puck right in front of the net. One of those that could be classified as a good penalty.
    Whoa huge hit by Jakub Zboril on a Canadian player--I think it was Brendan Lemieux, but not 100% sure. It was right in front of the Canadian bench and he got off before I could tell who it was.
    2-on-1 chance for the Czechs, Zacha fed Jakub Kotala, who ripped it just wide.
    Pressure down low forced a turnover deep in the Czech zone. Robby Fabbri had a shot from point-blank but Vanecek robbed him.
    Czech winger Lukas Vopelka shows some speed, winning a footrace to the puck and getting a good shot that Bilia had to be sharp on.
    Goal for Team Canada!
    They cash in on the power play. Back to Ekblad again on the draw, this time he finds MICHAEL DAL COLLE for the tap-in at the side of the net. Assist: Aaron Ekblad, Robby Fabbri.
    Canada is getting the game's first power play as defenceman Pavel Pycha gets called for hooking in his own zone.
