Canada Wins Gold at IIHF World Hockey Championships


I caught my first game of this tournament this afternoon, and we looked great.  We beat Finland 4-2 to win our third gold at the event in the past five years.

With Finland clawing back with a couple of goals in the third, Rick Nash scored a fantastic goal on a partial breakaway that sealed the deal.   Nash was named the tournament's most valuable player and earned a spot on its all-star team.

This victory was particularly sweet in light of the political bullshit stirred up at home.  Shane Doan helped us run the table and we won our ninth straight.  O Canada!
