Canada comes up short

Well another great game in the World Jr championships. The gold medal game between Canada and the USA and it went again to overtime. Canada fell behind 5-3 with 12 min left because of poor goal tending. Last time they came back against the US it was for poor defense play.

Now with just over 2 min they scored and then scored again with Eberle getting both goals. He has had a great tournament. 14 goals.

So now with teams tied after 3 periods it came down to sudden death overtime. Canada has been great in these in the past but this time one too many mistakes and we were caught in a 2 on 1 the other way and the shooter didn't miss.

All the credit to the USA they played their hearts out and made fewer mistakes and capitalized on their great chances to score.

Canada showed great grit and determination again coming back to force the over time.

Way to go USA you deserved it . well done.

but we will get you back next year.
