Canada continued their domination through the first two periods. Out skating, out hitting, and outscoring the Russian team 3-0 in the gold medal match.
Twenty minutes to play. The gold is locked up. The third period starts, and Canada stops skating. They stop hitting. They stop shooting. Russia, does not. In the first two minutes it's now 3-2. Three minutes later, 3-3. Five minutes after that, 4-3 Russia. After a last second tally, the final reads 5-3 Russia. The most epic collapse in World Junior Championship history. Silver for Canada. Again.
I'm kinda glad that blogger wasn't working last night, as I may have said some things that were, well, not necessary.
Bottom line, the kids worked their asses off and came home with silver medals. I'm proud of their effort, and the rest of Canada should be too. After all, they spanked the U.S., so there's that, right?
