Canada Wins 5th Straight World Juniors

By Wyatt Earp | January 6, 2009


Friggin’ organ-i-zation is a machine.

Team Canada won its fifth gold medal in a row at the world junior hockey championships Monday night, taking a first period lead on defenceman P.K. Subban’s second effort just 38 seconds into the game and riding the goaltending of a suddenly hot Dustin Tokarski.

Angelo Esposito scored a beauty on a backhand in the second period, Cody Hodgson let rip a wrist shot on the power play in the third, and Jordan Eberle and Hodgson scored into the empty net in a 5-1 win over Sweden, which takes home silver for the second year in a row.

There may have been doubters – about Canada’s goaltending, and Canada’s defence or surely that the law of averages would eventually catch up and end this streak. But there was never any doubt about Canada’s hockey heart. (H/T -

    Admiral - A matter of taste, but there are more than enough Canadian hotties. Check Timmeehh’s list.

    Doghouse - See? I would watch that, too. Ratings bonanza!

    Timmeehh - You had me at Kimberly Conrad.

    Agreed Wyatt. It is funny you said taste.

    I would work on a Sweden list but it would let my ADD get the best of me and I would start wandering the web.

    I would say those are nice imports too.
