World Junior Hockey Championships Final: Russia Shocks Canada.
The Gold Medal match of the 2011 World Junior Hockey Championship was disputed between Russia and Canada yesterday at the HSBC Arena in Buffalo.
After taking a 3-0 lead after two periods, team Canada looked to be in good shape to win the gold medal. But Russia came back from this deficit as they scored five unanswered goals during the third period to upset Canada by the score of 5-3.
Despite this horrible third period, team Canada disputed a very good tournament. Brayden Schenn led the way with a record-tying performance as he registered a total of 18 points.
Team USA defeated Team Switzerland and won the bronze medal on home ice.
