Russia 4, Canada 5

The gold medal game of the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship was quite riveting.

When I tuned into the game, Russia had just scored its first goal in an attempt to stay alive against the confident, undefeated Canadians. Fast forward a half hour and the Canadians were the ones struggling to survive against an aggressive Russian counterattack throughout the second period. The Russians refused to be a speed bump, a footnote in the young Canadians’ inexorable grasp for gold. However, there could only be one winner… and I’m not complaining.

P.S. The people working at the Air Canada Centre tonight know some great music.
