Canada falls short once more. Russia now seeks to Repeat!

In a thrilling Semi-Finals round match-up that saw 2 goalie changes, 4-straight goal efforts by both teams, and 3 entirely different periods of play, Canada once more fell short in the end. Russia got it going early and built a big enough lead helping them advance once more to the Gold Medal Game in the WJC and have a shot at a repeat.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
