STOCKHOLM – Brian Campbell sent Steven Stamkos in alone in overtime, and Stamkos made no mistake, firing the winner at 2:36 of overtime to give Canada a 4-3 win over Slovenia. It was his second goal of the night and sixth of the tournament.

Canada had defeated Slovenia by scores of 8-0 and 5-1 in the only two previous meetings in World Championship play.

The win gives Canada 18 points and top spot again in the Stockholm group, one point ahead of the Swiss, who have one game left tomorrow to reclaim first place. Slovenia has just one point and is relegated to Division I for 2014.

Slovenia wasn’t the better team in the first period based on puck possession, but it made the most of the few chances it had. Jan Urbas accounted for the only two goals, one a beauty, the other a dog.

He scored at 5:53 when he danced awkwardly around three stationery Canadians in the slot and took a shot that Dubnyk fumbled. The puck bounced off the goalie’s glove and drilled over the goal line. The play started when Claude Giroux was too cute on a two-on-one. Instead of firing a shot from in close, he tried to feather a hard pass to Steven Stamkos. It was inaccurate, though, and play moved up ice where Urbas did his thing.

His second goal was the result of a superb long pass from David Rodman. Urbas split the Canadian defencemen and snapped a hard shot past Dubnyk’s glove. Canada generated precious few scoring chances, though it did have the better of play at Globe Arena.

The second period started out as most fans expected the first period to go – Canada scored two quick goals. Matt Duchene got the first goal just 2:01 into the period when he scooped up a rebound on a Jordan Staal shot, beating goalie Luka Gracnar for the first time.

Just 50 seconds later Steven Stamkos tied the game thanks to a nice feed from behind the net courtesy of Giroux. But just when one might have thought Canada was taking control, the Slovenes shocked their opponents by going ahead, 3-2.

That goal came off a faceoff win in the Canadian end, finishing with a shot by Luka Tosic that was deflected in front by Tomaz Razingar at 7:17. Again Canada controlled the rest of the period but had little success in penetrating the stubborn Slovenian defence.

Canada came out and took control of the third period. It was rewarded at 7:09 when Brenden Dillon corralled a loose puck in the slot and beat Gracnar under the arm to tie the game, 3-3.
