Despite a tremendous effort Team Canada will not be continuing in the World Junior Hockey Championship. The team fell to Finland 6-5 in quarter final actions.
Canada is the defending tournament champion and despite grabbing the lead early and matching goals for goals, Finland was able to snag the lead and the game with a two man advantage in the final period.
This only the second time in the tournament history that Canada has been eliminated so early, ironically it happened in 1998 in the same place, Helsinki.
The loss isn’t sitting well with listeners to AM 640.
@am640 does anybody know what Vertanen was thinking on that holding the stick penalty?
