Well that sucked. Exciting game but I feel bad for the young fellas.

The final in few moments.....

So far the US took three offensive zone penalties and squandered two power plays.

And the Swedes appear to be coached by Jacques Lemaire, the neutral zone is a mess.

Going to be a tight one.

The players seem to be believing their own hype. Recap

Well, you just did.


Not denying the depth and strength of the Canadian program, but the world had largely caught up in preparation and coaching of these U-20 teams, and the difference in talent isn't that large.

Nice win.... excellent team defense.

Overall, good tournament, lots of good hockey. Noticed a lot of empty seat during many games though. That's the only negative I noticed.

Some solid NHL players coming out of this tournament.

Be back again boxing day later this year. Congrats USA.

Fun game to watch, wish I'd have seen the CAN/RUS game, that had to be fun. Too bad about the result.

The announcers mentioned that the USA beat SWE in the last three U-18 tourneys, it seems they know each other pretty well. I thought Sweden played a better team game and I'm sure their goalie wants that short-side squeaker by Grimaldi back.

Another fun tourney! Looking forward to 2014 in Malmo, Sweden.
