World Juniors 2012: The True North Strong and Free: Canada 3 United States 2

Even though this game was meaningless in every sort of the word, except for national pride, I was still most excited for this game, as compared to the others not only because it was the Canada v USA game, but because it pitted two North American style teams against one another.

 

Canada went up early with a 3-0 lead in the first and, unlike my Buffalo Sabres, did not blow the lead entirely. The United States managed to keep the game close throughout, but Team Canada managed to hang on and win.

 

Team Canada caps off a perfect 4-0-0-0 record in the group stage, and will move directly into the semifinals. The United States however,falls to 1-0-03, and will face Latvia in the relegation round.
