Read today that Canadiens made their dressing room and practice facility at Brossard available to the Canadian juniors. Nice gesture. Some of these kids will never make it to the pros, but they'll have the added experience of using those first-rate venues as memories.
Great pace to the Canadian / Finland game, much like the USA / Finland game. And MUCH more intense than the Flyers / Yotes, lol Reinhard with two goals, the second on a kinda mixed up play due to Domi being tied up in the corner. The Fins have kept pace in this game coming back to cutting this to a one goal game on a whiffed pass by Morin and Lehkonen picking up the puck for a quick shot on Fucale. Fucale miss played it and Lehkonen scores on his rebound. It is going to be a good 3rd p
I feel bad for Morin also. That kind of flub, it can happen to anyone, 1 times out of 100 you wiff on one of those zone clearing passes, Morin just picked a time when the whole nation was watching. If it effects future ice time, the coaching staff deserves what they get. Having Heatherington as the sole defensive d-man would be a huge mistake, this team badly needs Morin's skill sets.
Overconfidence is a dangerous thing. Hopefully it doesn't rear its ugly head. These kids look like they're on a mission. Nobody can match the depth at forward or that speed from the backend. So far so good on the goaltending.
