Wednesday Morning Hockey Fun

The World Junior Championships’ semi-finals are being played today in Sweden. Team Canada vs Team USA are up and the game is starting at 10:00 a.m. ET.  You can get the broadcast online by TSN Broadband. Or, if you’re having trouble connecting to the game due to your location, Sharkspage has some ideas for alternate internet broadcasts.

Of course, you can always just fake an illness, leave work, and enjoy the game the old-fashioned way: NHL Center Ice and TSN are both televising the game live.

Other games being played today:
10:00 am ET Germany vs Belarus
1:30 pm ET Russia vs Sweden

1:00 pm ET Post-Game Update:
If you didn’t watch this one, you missed out. The US scored first and held the lead till Canada tied it up in the 3rd. An overtime penalty against Canada gave the USA an excellent chance to end it, but they couldn’t convert. Ultimately the game went to a shootout, and 8 rounds later, Canada walked away the winner with a ticket to the gold medal game.

And by the way, despite the 8-round shootout scoring frenzy, there was some fantastic goaltending by both teams.  Games like this are exactly why the World Junior Championships are must-see hockey.
