And remember that Canada takes on France for a two game tilt at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto so if you're in the city, you should make that effort to come out and support the Senior Men.  The game will be good and really should be a tougher test for the Men than China was even with the losses of Parker, Noah and Beaubois.  Get the info here
