2007 World Junior Hockey Championships

The tournament just started today, and after two games, there have already been two major upsets. The US lost 2-1 to Germany, and Finland lost to Belarus 4-3.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - this tournament features the best hockey you'll see all year.

The 2-1 US loss was in OT. It matters, becuase the scoring this year is different. Each game is worth 3 standings points. If it ends in regulation, all 3 go to the winner. If it ends in OT or a shootout, 2 to the winner, 1 to the loser.

Canada and Russia have clinched semi-final births by winning their respective groups.

Amazing game between Canada and the US. I'll spoil the result just in case you didn't watch it live.
Spoiler:
A 5-4 shootout win by Canada thanks in large part by an amazing effort by Carey Price especially during the overtime period.

Anyone know if the Canada game is being broadcast live in the US? I'm watching the Sweden/USA game on Center Ice now, but I don't see a listing for the championship game. Nothing on ESPN either.

It seems that even the TSN.ca broadband live cast is restricted to Canadians IP only.

Congrats goes out to our Canadian Juniors players, coaches and management.

Some of the players that impressed me the most in our Canadian team were Price, Toews and Latang. Price was unbelievable in this tournament. If he can carry that level of play to the pros, Montreal will have found another amazing goalie.
