Ice Hockey: Canada crushes Slovakia 18-0 in record win

Canada got their gold medal defence off to a rousing start with a record-setting 18-0 thrashing of Slovakia in their opening game of the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games on Saturday.

Jayna Hefford and Meghan Agosta scored three goals each for Canada who set a record for the most lopsided win women's Olympic hockey tournament history.

Canada also held the previous record for the biggest blowout, a 16-0 demolition of host Italy at the Torino 2006 Olympic Games.

"Our goal was too win the game, work on maintaining good habits and let the puck do the work," said Canada coach Melody Davidson.

"Regardless of the score we are please to see Slovakia competing here."

Hefford finished with a game-high six points in front of a crowd of 16,496 at the Canada Hockey Place arena.

Caroline Ouellette had a goal and four assists and Carla MacLeod had with two goals and two assists for Canada who scored a pair of shorthanded markers just 44 seconds apart in the second period.

Slovakia is making their first appearance in the women's tournament as they were promoted to the top level after winning the qualifying event.
I saw some of the replay...

It's weird...The goalie for Slovakia let in 18 goals and I STILL say she was the best player on the ice...Canada could've scored 40 if it wasn't for her (they had 67 shots)...

She should sue the rest of her team for non-support...
