SOCHI, Russia (AP)- Jeff Carter scored three consecutive goals in the second period, Roberto Luongo made 23 saves, and Canada beat Austria 6-0 Friday to take a commanding position in preliminary-round play at the Olympic hockey tournament.

Shea Weber and Ryan Getzlaf each had a goal and an assist in the Canadians’ second win in two nights in Sochi. Their star-studded lineup rolled over undermanned Austria with 46 shots and relentless waves of offense, starting with Drew Doughty’s goal in the opening minutes before Carter’s natural hat trick in an 11:54 span.

Bernhard Starkbaum gave up six goals in the first two periods before Mathias Lange replaced him for the third for Austria, which dropped to 0-2.
