Morning Line- Peter Forsberg On The Olympics

“When I won the Olympics in ‘94, there were no NHL players and for me it was one of the biggest tournaments I ever played, so I have that perspective of the tournament - it doesn’t have to be the NHL players.

“But for the players that are going there, they’re playing for their country and it’s still going to be a huge tournament, a lot of people watching and I think it’s going to be a great tournament, even if the NHL is not there.”

-Peter Forsberg on the Olympics.  More at Reuters.

Gold For Team Canada

from Frank Seravalli of TSN,

Heyyyy, baby. I wanna know if you’ll be my Gold.

Taking the motto that a great team is only as strong as its weakest link to Hart, Team Canada rode a roster without any stars to gold at the 2018 World Junior Hockey Championship on Friday night with a 3-1 win over Team Sweden.

Ooh, ahh.

Tyler Steenbergen, the only Team Canada forward to not score in the tournament, delivered the golden goal with 1:40 left in a cauldron of red-and-white clad fans who flocked across the border to Buffalo.

Team Canada Goes For Gold Tonight

from Mike Zeisberger of NHL.com,

Canada has been here before. This tournament. This game. This moment.

Even this ice surface.

More often than not in recent times, it hasn't worked out well.

The players on this year's team are constantly reminded of it too. After defeating the Czech Republic 7-2 in the second semifinal at the IIHF World Junior Championship on Thursday, they were peppered with questions regarding past failures in the final.

Canada has won the tournament once in the previous eight years as it prepares for the gold medal game against Sweden at Key Bank Center on Friday (8 p.m. ET; NHLN, TSN, RDS). For a country that has captured the World Junior title 16 times, it's a dry spell of epic proportions.
