Its A Four-peat!

Four years in a row Canada's Junior hockey team brings home the gold. I wouldn't be much of a Canadian if I didn't mention anything about the achievement of our 17 and 18 year old team. Especially since this is the fourth year in a row that they have captured gold! I missed the final game, but I saw all the highlights after watching my favourite failing hockey team lose yesterday. Apparently it was a real nail biter.

The game went to over time and Canada defeated the Swedish team in a 3 - 2 victory. This was the second time Canada faced Sweden in this tournament. Sweden ended Canada's 21 game winning streak in the round robin. Up until the gold medal game yesterday Sweden was undefeated in the tournament. The Game winning goal came at 3:36 of the overtime period and the game winning goal went to Forward Matt Halischuk. Goalie Steve Mason made 26 saves, the biggest was in the overtime period when Sweden's forward Tony Lagerstrom was denied.

The final standing for the tournament are:
Gold - Canada
Silver - Sweden
Bronze - Russia
