Fisher, Canada feast on Hungary

Team Canada didn’t exactly wait seven decades to work up an appetite for this one.

In the rarest of meetings at the 2009 IIHF World Championship, Canada gobbled up Hungary 9-0 on Sunday in a preliminary-round mismatch in Kloten, Switzerland. It was the first meeting between the two countries at the hockey worlds in 71 years, when they played to a 1-1 tie.

Canada had little trouble improving to 2-0-0 in the tournament, building a 4-0 first-period lead at the Arena Zurich-Kloten and cruising home from there. For the second straight game, Ottawa Senators players figured prominently in the Canadian attack, although Dany Heatley – who had a pair of goals in Friday’s 6-1 victory over Belarus – was held off the scoresheet this time.

Centres Jason Spezza and Mike Fisher had assists on first-period goals by Derek Roy and James Neal, respectively, before scoring once each in the final 20 minutes. Senators defenceman Chris Phillips earned a pair of assists in the second period.

Martin St. Louis of the Tampa Bay Lightning led Canada with a hat-trick, while Shea Weber of the Nashville Predators notched a pair of goals. Chris Mason of the St. Louis Blue stopped 16 shots for the shutout. Canadian shooters peppered Hungary’s Levente Szuper, a former Ottawa 67’s goaltender, with 51 shots.

In other games Sunday, Senators defenceman Christoph Schubert had a goal in Germany’s 3-2 overtime loss to Switzerland in Bern, while Russia whipped France 7-2 and Belarus edged Slovakia 2-1 in a shootout.

Canada faces Slovakia in its final preliminary-round game on Tuesday (2:15 p.m., TSN).
