Canada won a third straight world junior hockey championship and its first in Europe in a decade with a 4-2 win over Russia in Friday’s final.
After taking the title in Vancouver last year and in Grand Forks, N.D., in 2005, the challenge for this Canadian squad was to win it outside North America. The country hadn’t done so since 1997 in Geneva, Switzerland.
Canada rode its excellent goaltending, defencemen and special teams to the final and the only question mark then was whether the team could produce enough goals at even-strength against the skilled and speedy Russians.
