Canada 4, Finland 0
For the fifth straight year, Canada has advanced to the finals at the world junior hockey championship. Once again, our foe is Russia who we face Thursday at 19:00 EST for gold.
This year's squad plays a typically hard defensive game and relies on Leaf prospect Justin Pogge between the pipes. As Canadian teams go, this one is particularly offensively challenged. Late in the second and only up 1-0, I feared an upset. Still, against all odds, we're once again playing for all the marbles. The intangible Canadian spirit can never be overestimated!
Pog-ge! Pog-ge! Pog-ge! Pog-ge!
