Mitch Marner scored twice and the power play continued to roll as Canada finished out its preliminary round at the world hockey championship with a 5-2 win over Finland.

The Canadians scored early and often, with Marner notching his third and fourth goals of the tournament in an opening period where Canada outshot the Finns 15-6. Colton Parayko, Brayden Point and Matt Duchene also scored for Canada.

Manrner opened the scoring 2:46 into the game off an impressive toe-drag after a feed from Point. Jani Lajunen replied for the Finns to even the score at 1-1 just 22 seconds later.

The Canadian power play then went to work, with Marner setting up Parayko for his third goal of the tournament before scoring his second of the game to give Canada a 3-1 lead after 20 minutes.

Canada finished the preliminary round with 12 power-play goals on 25 attempts, second in efficiency behind Russia (13-for-24).
