According to the Hockey Canada website, team Canada won their opener in the Olympic men's hockey tournament at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi on Thursday.

Canada got two key goals from their defense (Shea Weber of the Nashville Predators and Drew Doughty from the Los Angeles Kings) in a 3-1 victory over Norway.

The Canadians and Norwegians actually played the contest very even in the opening period with Canada only outshooting Norway 9-8. Weber then opened the scoring with a slap shot from the point in the second period before Jamie Benn of the Dallas Stars scored the game winning goal with 4:41 left in the middle frame.

Norway bounced back with a power play marker early in the third period before Doughty provided insurance.

Team Canada will now play Austria on Friday (10:00 a.m., CBC). In other action, the United States trounced Slovakia 7-1, Russia beat Slovenia 5-2 and Finland beat Austria 8-4.
