Team Canada 2, TEAM EUROPE 1

LATE RALLY PROPELS TEAM CANADA TO WORLD CUP CHAMPIONSHIP
Down 1-0 late in the third period, Patrice Bergeron tied the game at 17:07 of the frame and Brad Marchand scored a shorthanded goal with 43.1 seconds remaining in regulation to power Team Canada to the World Cup of Hockey 2016 championship.

* Team Canada captured its sixth victory in the World Cup of Hockey/Canada Cup, adding to its championships in 1976, 1984, 1987, 1991 and 2004. It also finished the tournament with a perfect 6-0-0 record; the only other time Team Canada won all of its games at such an event was the most recent iteration, the 2004 World Cup of Hockey (also 6-0-0).

* Marchand recorded his tournament-leading fifth goal of the World Cup of Hockey 2016, while Bergeron – Marchand’s NHL teammate with the Boston Bruins – added his fourth, second among all players. Their fellow Bruins teammate Zdeno Chara provided the lone goal for Team Europe.

* The line of Sidney Crosby (3-7—10), Marchand (5-3—8) and Bergeron (4-3—7) combined for 12-13—25 in the tournament and finished the World Cup of Hockey 2016 ranked Nos. 1, 2 and 3, respectively, in overall scoring.

He has totaled 10-16—26, as well as three game-winning goals (and a gold-medal goal), in those 25 appearances:

2014 Olympic Winter Games (6 GP): 1-2—3
2015 World Championship (9 GP): 4-7—11
World Cup of Hockey 2016 (6 GP): 3-7—10

* The World Cup of Hockey 2016 coronation continues a 17-month stretch for Crosby that also has seen him win the 2015 World Championship and 2015-16 Stanley Cup (with the Pittsburgh Penguins). He also won the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP during Pittsburgh’s run to the Stanley Cup in June.

I feel nothing but pride of the way this group performed today, the challenge they put up against Canada. This group just continued to surprise and beat the odds and beat the thoughts of everybody that was watching . . . Looking back, I know with some distance from today, we will do nothing but celebrate this month of September 2016 as a special month for this Team Europe group and what they did here.” – Team Europe head coach Ralph Krueger

Team Sweden tied the game with 4:32 remaining in regulation, but Tomas Tatar (2-0—2)scored at 3:43 of overtime to propel Team Europe into the final of the World Cup of Hockey 2016.

* Team Europe – a pan-European roster of players from birth countries outside of the Czech Republic, Finland, Russia and Sweden – features players from eight countries: Germany and Slovakia (6 apiece); Switzerland (4); Denmark (3); and Austria, France, Norway and Slovenia (1 apiece). The combined record of those countries in 17 World Cup of Hockey/Canada Cup games before this tournament was 1-15-1 (West Germany/Germany: 1-9-1, Slovakia: 0-6-0).

* Team Europe defeated Team USA, Team Czech Republic and Team Sweden to reach the final of the World Cup of Hockey 2016. Those countries have combined to win 11 IIHF World Championships, three Olympic gold medals and one World Cup of Hockey championship over the past 25 years.

* Tatar, who also gave Team Europe the lead 12 seconds into the third period, recorded his first two goals of the World Cup of Hockey 2016. He has one overtime goal in 280 career NHL games (regular season and playoffs), for the Detroit Red Wings on Nov. 16, 2015 at OTT.

* “[I’m] just so pleased that these peripheral countries in the world of hockey have had an opportunity to compete with the best in the world for the first time in their life and to truly believe in being competitive on the way to a semifinal, and then the overtime showed the belief in the group to get to the final,” said Team Europe head coach Ralph Krueger. “That’s not possible when these players show up alone at tournaments. They’re forever fighting relegation in world tournaments. They’re forever fighting just to get to Olympic Games, forget about competing for anything at them. And to be in a best-on-best tournament for these countries that are important for the game of hockey, that are future-growth countries for the game, I’m just so pleased for all of them.”

TEAM RUSSIA 3, Team Finland 0
TEAM CZECH REPUBLIC 4, Team USA 3


TEAM RUSSIA BLANKS FINNS, PUNCHES TICKET TO SEMIFINALS
A slick give-and-go between Vladimir Tarasenko and Alex Ovechkin was all the offense Team Russia needed in a 3-0 win over Team Finland, sending the Russians to a Semifinal showdown with Team Canada Saturday night. Tarasenko's goal 3:42 into the second period broke a scoreless tie and goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky stopped all 21 Finland shots as Team Russia, needing a win to avoid elimination, edged idle Team North America for second place in Group B.

* Ovechkin led Team Russia in points during Round Robin play with 1-2---3 in three games, while Tarasenko topped the squad with two goals. The pair have scored a combined 90 goals in each of the past two NHL seasons (Ovechkin 50, Tarasenko 40 in 2015-16; Ovechkin 53, Tarasenko 37 in 2014-15).

* Saturday will mark the 13th meeting between a Russian/Soviet team and Team Canada in Canada Cup/World Cup of Hockey history, with Canada owning a 7-3-2 edge. Their last clash in a Canada Cup/World Cup of Hockey elimination game was the epic Game 3 of the 1987 Canada Cup, won by Canada 6-5 with a late goal by Mario Lemieux on a setup from Wayne Gretzky.

CZECH REPUBLIC TOPS TEAM USA IN ROUND ROBIN FINALE
Goals by Andrej Sustr and Milan Michalek 39 seconds apart late in the second period spurred the Czech Republic to a 4-3 win over Team USA in the final game of the Round Robin schedule. The Czech Republic completed the World Cup of Hockey with a 1-1-1 record while Team USA dropped to 0-3-0.

* Michalek's goal, his second of the game, gave the Czech Republic a 4-2 lead and ultimately proved the game-winner. His older brother Zbynek opened the scoring in the first period, marking the first time in World Cup of Hockey history that brothers had lit the lamp in the same game.

The Recording Academy® Statement Re: Buckwheat Zydeco Sept. 22, 2016

"
Buckwheat Zydeco embodied a genre and represented a community with his signature playing style that brought distinctly creole zydeco music to fans across the globe. Buckwheat played both for and with legends, performing at both Clinton inaugurations, touring with Eric Clapton, and collaborating with a seemingly endless list of artists over his 40-plus year career. He won an Emmy for his work in TV and a GRAMMY® in the genre he helped define. The world lost a music heavyweight today. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends."

The Recording Academy® Statement Re: John D. Loudermilk Sept. 22, 2016

"
John D. Loudermilk had an uncanny ability to create songs that crossed genres and to draw fans in with captivating stories. 'Tobacco Road,' one of his best-known tunes, has been covered nearly 200 times and remains a testament to John’s ability to connect with audiences through authentic lyrics. John came from humble beginnings. The first instrument he learned to play was a ukulele made from a cigar box, but it proved to be the start of a career that included a GRAMMY® win and many hits. He is a reminder that talent can come from anywhere and music must be nurtured. Our thoughts go out to his family, friends, and fans."
