Canada Nearly Shuts Out Denmark

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored twice as Canada cruised past host Denmark 7-1 Monday at the world hockey championship.

Canada captain Connor McDavid, a teammate of Nugent-Hopkins on the NHL's Edmonton Oilers, had three assists.

Josh Bailey, Aaron Ekblad, Jordan Eberle, Ryan O'Reilly and Tyson Jost also scored for Canada, which has two regulation wins and a shootout loss through three games.

Aabo Jesper Jensen had the only goal for Denmark.

Canada now sits second in the Group B standings, one point behind the United States — Canada's next game is Thursday against Norway.
