Canada find themselves (+135) odds underdogs against the host team HC Davos with a total of 5.5 goals. These odds and more can be found online at Bet365 along with live betting for this Spengler Cup game.

Part of the reason that Canada are underdogs here is the fact this squad was only assembled three days ago, and as a result they have only practiced as a team once. This is while other European teams in this tournament have been together for months.

The Spengler Cup is much bigger to the European team than it is for Canada, who consider the World Juniors to be a much bigger event. This means that Canada will have to contend with hungrier squads and if they don’t get their chemistry going early things could get ugly — especially against the host team.

Nobody understands this more than Team Canada coach Guy Boucher, who coaches full-time in nearby Bern, Switzerland.

“The quality of the teams in the tournament is really high and they’ve been together for months whereas Canada, in one day, has to come up with a roster and gameplan that’s going to beat that. In that regard I think that’s the toughest thing to do, getting the chemistry on and off the ice in that short amount of time . . . but my expectation is always to win at whatever I do.”
