World Junior Hockey Championships: Canada wins a 5th consecutive gold medal.

The 2009 World Junior Hockey Championships was completed yesterday in Ottawa, Canada with a 5-1 victory of the home team over Team Sweden. A fifth consecutive Gold medal at these championships for Canada.

The 2009 edition of the tournament sold 453 282 tickets for a new attendance record. Ottawa also has the single-game record with a crowd exceeding 20 000 fans. A first time in the history of these championships.

As for the Gold medal game itself, Team Canada did not give a chance to Team Sweden at all. The score remained even for 38 seconds in the first period as P.K. Subban pounced on a loose puck in front of the Swede net to put Canada ahead.

Angelo Esposito scored an important goal during the second period when his backhanded shot found the mark upstairs behind goaltender Jacob Markstrom who played good despite the loss. Esposito's goal was the game-winner.

Canada struck early in the third period as only 33 seconds were played when Cody Hodgson scored during a man-advantage to put Canada up by three. Jordan Eberle and Hodgson with his second goal of the game completed for Canada.

Only Joakim Andersson scored on Canadian goaltender Dustin Tokarski.
