No Sidney Crosby. No Connor McDavid. No problem for Canada. 

The Canadian men’s hockey team cruised to a 5-1 victory over Switzerland in its 2018 Winter Olympics opener Thursday at the Kwandong Hockey Centre in South Korea.

After the United States and the Olympic Athletes from Russia were upset during Wednesday’s action, the Team Canada victory brings a sense of normalcy to the tournament, which is being contested without most of the world’s best players due to the NHL’s decision not to attend the Pyeongchang Games.

Rene Bourque led the offensive charge for the Canadians with two goals. Wojtek Wolski also found the net twice, including an empty-netter, while Maxim Noreau added a goal and Derek Roy tallied three assists.
