Drive For Five!

Oh Canada! The young guns won the 5th straight World Junior Hockey Championship for Canada with a win over Sweden in the gold medal game. 

They got there with a heart stopping shootout win over Russia in the semi-final.  Canada was trailing 5-4, but scored with the goalie pulled and 5 seconds left to tie it and then won in a shootout to go to the gold medal game.

And then they clinched it tonight.  Way to go boys!

The "Winning Feeling" is a vicarious phenomenon isn't it? It is especially good if it is the battle is with another country. Ride the wave till next year. Congratulations to the Canadians. Pappy
