[1]UFA, Russia (AP) — Ryan Strome scored two goals and Canada rallied to beat Slovakia 6-3 at the world junior ice hockey championships Friday.

Goals in the first period from Marko Dano and Tomas Mikus put Slovakia 2-0 ahead before Strome narrowed the gap at 22:16. Dano restored the two-goal margin on a power play midway through the second period.

But Morgan Rielly, Ty Rattia and Mark Schiefele put Canada 4-3 ahead after 40 minutes. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Strome then scored a goal each early in the third period to seal Canada’s second victory after a 9-3 win over Germany in the Group B opener on Wednesday.

Also Friday, the Czech Republic scored its first victory at the event, beating Finland 2-1 on first-period goals by Marek Hrbas and Tomas Hyka.
