After two periods, the Canadians looked to be in good position to advance, up one goal on the EHC Wolfsburg Grizzly Adams. However, Germany's Christopher Fischer tied it up with less than nine minutes in the third, and the canucks were unable to reclaim the advantage, even with a late power play.
The game went to a shoot out after a scoreless overtime, but out of four shooters, only Joël Perrault was able to covert a goal. Both Kai Hespelt and Tyler Haskins were able to beat Team Canada goalie Marty Turco, ending the game, and the competition for the Canadians.
Hartigan was kept pointless during the finals, and spent two minutes in the penalty box during the first game. Canada won that opener 7-1 over the Czech HC Vitkovice Steel, before having the tables turned on them, losing 8-1 to the Swiss HC Davos.
The Spengler Cup is the oldest professional international hockey tournament in the world and has been held in the beautiful mountain town of Davos since 1923. The competition features five European club teams and a Canadian entry comprised largely of European-based pros.
Canada's National Men's Team has won the Spengler Cup 11 times, most recently in 2007.
