IIHF World Junior Championship
Canada vs. Switzerland @ Credit Union Centre
There's not much I can say really except...
WE'RE GOING FOR OUR 6TH GOLD MEDAL, CANADA!!!
And the fact that other than the fact that we're going to the finals for the 5th year running, it wasn't that great of a hockey game. Sure they were playing the game, but it wasn't what we really expected.
The game wasn't major highlight reel work, nor was it perfect hockey. There weren't many good shots, great hits, or great PP work. To most standards, it wasn't even acceptable (especially from the coaching staff). But it got the job done, that's all that matters.
1st period/1ère périod

The only worry we all have now is when does Calvin de Haan come back and what's the status of Travis Hamonic?
But that can be easily pushed aside when we say, WE'RE GOING TO THE FINALS!
Tune in at 17:00 PT/20:00 ET on 5 Jan. on TSN!!
