Nazem Kadri and Ryan Ellis talk about Canada’s six-game winning streak and their climb to the top of Group A at the 2014 World Hockey Championship. The Canadians lost their first game, a shocking upset to France, but have since rebounded and will play Finland in the Belarus tournament’s quarterfinals.

The Canadian roster has mixed veterans – like its captain, Canucks defenceman Kevin Bieksa – with youngsters like Kadri and Ellis, as well as Nathan MacKinnon, Morgan Rielly, Sean Monahan and Mark Scheifele.

“You just gain experience,” Scheifele said. “You play against different kinds of hockey. It’s just kind of a matter of learning how to adapt to who you’re playing against, what kind of competition you’re coming against. Obviously just playing with and against the best players in the world helps.”
