Canada's McDonald stars at World Championships
The Associated Press
KARLSTAD, Sweden Former Cincinnati Mighty Ducks center Andy McDonald of Anaheim scored the decisive goal Friday, lifting Canada to a 3-2 win over Switzerland in the second round of the World Championships.
Already qualified and having overcome Germany 3-1 the day before, the Canadians appeared tired and low on motivation, making only a halfhearted effort against the Swiss in the half-filled Lofbergs Lila Arena.
I think when you play a tournament like this, you don't need as much rest as during the year, but obviously when you play at 8 o'clock one night and 4 in the afternoon the next day, it takes a toll on your body, said Mike Comrie of the Edmonton Oilers. But these are times when you just suck it up and play for your country.
McDonald scored what would be the game-winner, taking a pass from Calgary's Jamie Wright and beating sprawling goalie Lars Weibel to make it 3-1.
