Canada 7, United States 4

Canada Hockey

Down 3-0 early, things were looking grim.  Then, John Tavares took over, scoring two goals in a span of 48 seconds to bring us back.  Heck, even his third goal of the net, an empty netter, was something special.  He picked up the puck at the U.S. blue-line, held off a defender with his left arm, and carried the puck to the crease to score a one-handed goal and ice the win.

Canada now plays the winner of Friday's quarter-final between Russia and the Czech Republic in the semis.  If you saw this one, you witnessed one hell of an exciting game.  This is why I love the junior tourney.
