Canada scores perfect record at World Junior Hockey Championships

  In the preliminary round the Canadian junior team scored a perfect record of 4 wins and 0 losses. Their final game of the first round was against the U.S. Canada won by a score of 3 to 2. The Canadians scored 27 goals while letting in only 5 in the games played so far.
  The U.S. Canadian game was close even though Canada was ahead 3 to 0 after the first period. The U.S. fought back in the third period and scored two goals in the third period with just under seven minutes remaining. The Canadians manage to regroup and hold off the U.S. for the win.
   The U.S. has had a poor series. A 5 to 2 loss against the Czech Republic knocked the U.S. team out of the medal round after an earlier U.S. loss to Finland. For more see this article.
