Julien Gauthier gets an assist, but check out the work Nicolas Roy did to double Canada’s lead over Russia.

The Team Canada line of Nicolas Roy, Julien Gauthier and Tyson Jost, as Kevin previewed earlier today, has shown a ton of chemistry in the pre-tournament warmup games before this year’s World Juniors.

They’re showing it off tonight too in the first game of the tournament for Canada against Russia. Gauthier earned an assist on this play, but given that his contribution on this play was setting a pick for Roy to run into, it’s fair to say that this goal was all Roy’s doing to put Canada up 3-1.
