Canada scored three times in the second period and added five more in the third to beat the team it will face on April 4 at the worlds in Utica, New York.

Blayre Turnbull paced Canada’s attack with two goals and assist, while Sarah Nurse and Julia Gosling each had a goal and assist.

Renata Fast, Ella Shelton, Kristin O’Neill and Nicole Gosling also scored for Canada, which outshot Finland 47-21.

Sofianna Sundelin and Petra Nieminen scored for Finland, who led 1-0 after the first period, but trailed 3-3 heading into the third.

Finland was 1-for-4 on the power play, while Canada went 0-for-4.
