Thanks to some stellar play in the first period followed by strong checking and a sound defensive strategy, the Canadian Juniors forced themselves into the gold medal game on Wednesday.
As always Canadian Heroes was well represented with many Armed forces members in attendance. They were treated to a bit of friendly revenge after loosing to the U.S.A. in the final of the World Junior Championship in Saskatoon in 2010. Our Canadian boys were all too happy to return the favor. This year when the buzzer sounded after 60 minutes of play the Canucks led 4 to 1, more than enough to go for the gold.
This win, coupled by the Russian victory over Sweden, gives our heroes a classic final to watch on Jan. 5. Both teams, Russia and Canada, failed to earn a by past the quarter finals but both managed to overcome the odds and battled for their shot at glory. Sweden and the U.S.A will face off for the bronze medal just before Canada and Russia play the final at HSBC Arena in Buffalo.
We at Canadian Heroes do our best to serve our troops, they do our country proud. Canadian Forces members and civilians alike are proud of our World Juniors. Keep up the good work boys. Bring home the gold!
