Chris Kelly and Andrew Ebbett had two goals apiece to help Canada defeat the Czech Republic and earn a bronze medal in Pyeongchang.

Andrew Ebbett and Chris Kelly scored twice as Canada beat the Czech Republic to win bronze in men’s hockey at Pyeongchang.

Ebbett opened the scoring 8:57 into the game before the Czechs responded 16 seconds later to make it 1-1.

Canada needed just 15 seconds to re-take the lead, when captain Chris Kelly tipped home Cody Goloubef’s point shot.
