Canada Hockey

I have seen the future of Toronto Maple Leafs hockey, and his name is Justin Pogge.  Pogge posted a .952 save percentage for the tournament, his 1.00 goals-against average ties him for best in tournament history and Canada's six goals against set a record.  He recorded three shutouts and went 150 minutes and 50 seconds without giving up a goal to close out last night's game.

Canada has won its first back-to-back world junior titles since 1996 and 1997.  Head coach Brent Sutter is now 12-0 in his two years at the helm of the national team, making him the winningest Canadian coach in the history of this tournament.  It was an easy win, much like last year.
