SOCHI, Russia -- Adam Dixon scored twice and Dominic Larocque added a goal and an assist Sunday as Canada defeated Norway 4-0 in sledge hockey at the Sochi Winter Paralympic Games.
Anthony Gale and Kevin Rempel added two assists, while Corbin Watson had to make just six saves to get the shutout as Canada improved to 2-0.
Larocque scored on the power play 4:20 into the second period to snap a 0-0 tie. It was his third of the tournament after picking up two goals in Canada's 10-1 victory over Sweden on Saturday.
Dixon, who had two goals and two assists against Sweden, then made it 2-0 with 4:26 to go in the second before making it 3-0 at 1:07 of the third.
Marc Dorion notched his first of the tournament with 21.8 seconds left in regulation to round out the scoring.
Dixon and Gale both have six points after two games.
Canada has an off-day on Monday before taking on the Czech Republic on Tuesday.
Norway, which defeated Canada in the bronze-medal game at the 2010 Vancouver Paralympics, will meet Sweden the same day.
