I caught quite a bit of the World Junior hockey tournament in Alberta between Boxing Day and yesterday.
Canada went undefeated in the round robin and lost to Russia in the semi – it was close at the end, but, as the saying goes, close only counts in horse-shoes (and hand grenades). Canada defeated Finland yesterday afternoon, 4-0 – not much of a game really. Visentin from the Niagara Ice Dogs did a great job in net and got player of the game.
Russia then met Sweden in the gold medal game. After 3 periods, it was 0-0 and Russia had been out-shot 50-10 (or something like that). Sweden got a goal in the over-time period to win. I guess I was hoping for Sweden to defeat Russia but really, did I care?
Great weather outside today – it is 8 degrees. I think it is time to take the dogs for a walk.
