US Jr. Hockey Team  overcame a two goal deficit twice (TWICE!!) in the Championship game to defeat Team Canada Jr.s  5 to 4 in Montreal (Jan. 5)

After a 60 minute game and a 10 minute Overtime the game was eventually determined by a Shoot Out.

Obviously little to chose between the two teams, but US were worthy winners.

    Shoot outs are exciting but to me there should have been co-champs. I am so excited over the Minnesota Wild prospects on the various teams.

      My opinion on Shoot Outs – it’s no way to win and no way to lose. Especially when you get that deep.
      Yes! Mini looks to have a bright future with those kids coming up.
      Have a good one!
