Canada's opening day 5-3 victory over Russia showed us a couple of things. For starters, this year's Team Canada has a real shot at competing. The team is structured well with a team-based approach in their systems and having all five players on the same page while on the ice. The game also displayed the immense skill that Canada possesses. Dylan Strome, Tyson Jost, Matthew Barzal and Pierre Luc Dubois, among others, have the traits to become dominant players for Canada.
While Canada did pull off a convincing victory over Russia, no indications have been made as to who will be the team's starting goaltender moving forward. Tonight, Connor Ingram will take the reigns from Connor Hart and start between the pipes as Canada faces off against Slovakia.
Puck drop is slated for 8pm ET and you can catch tonight's game and all the World Junior action on TSN.

It's no secret that the Oilers need to improve their defensive core.
Trading Taylor Hall for Adam Larsson was a step in the right direction, but it's not going to improve the team's back end over night. Acquiring someone like Adam Larsson shouldn't be the only step the Oilers take to improving their biggest weakness.
The Oilers have a handful of very prominent forwards surrounding Connor McDavid. What about flipping one of those forwards in exchange for another top-four defender?
