Andrew Mangiapane, whose arrival midway through the preliminary round provided a spark for Canada, was named player of the tournament. The Calgary Flames forward had seven goals -- including the winners in Canada's quarterfinal and semifinal victories -- and four assists in seven games. His arrival was late because Calgary, like other Canadian teams, had its NHL season extended to make up several postponed games with the Vancouver Canucks, a franchise that was plagued by a lengthy COVID-19 pause at midseason.
Nick Suzuki restored the three-goal lead in the third period with a power play goal and Armia with his second, also shorthanded, scored into the empty net to make the final 5-1.
Jean-Gabriel Pageau also had two assists to help New York finish off Boston in a front of a raucous home crowd at Nassau Coliseum.

The Capitals hired Peter Laviolette as head coach this past offseason to instill urgency within the franchise. They also added long-time Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara to add accountability in the locker room. The team had grown stale after winning the franchise's first Stanley Cup in 2018, with back-to-back first-round exits in the two years following. In addition to holding the Caps accountable, Laviolette was also charged with adapting the way the team played.

Hearing Islanders head coach Barry Trotz talk about how the Islanders were the least penalized team in the league in the regular season had more than a few shades of Craig Berube in the 2019 Stanley Cup Final. The Bruins handled that poorly and lost in seven games. They want to just get to a seventh game after dropping two in a row, including Game 5 at home. Now it’s do or die.
