MALMO, SWEDEN - That was close.
Canada got goals from Nic Petan and Jonathan Drouin in the final six minutes of the third period on Monday, coming from behind to beat Slovakia 5-3 before a thrilled crowd of mostly Canadian supporters at the Malmo Isstadion.
Canada looked to be headed to a second consecutive loss at the 2014 world junior championship, but Drouin scored at 14:02 after getting a pass from Anthony Mantha to tie the game.
Drouin, alone in front, didnít hesitate, one-timing Manthaís pass from behind the net behind Slovakia goalie Samuel Baros.
Petan got the winner during a power play at 17:14, waiting out Baros before beating him with a low shot, and then scored into an empty net with 1:20 remaining.
