If you haven’t seen highlights of Canada’s opening game of the World Juniors, here ya go. The Oilers’ Ryan Nugent-Hopkins put up a 5pt effort in the win. Team USA faces Germany tomorrow morning at 9am ET. The feed will be available on NHL.com
These pictures are so bad in quality, but I don’t even care because we dominated! 😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃 We are gold medal champions! 🏆
Sweden may’ve taken an early lead, making it 0-1, but Grimaldi contributed two goals, 2-1. Then Sweden decides to go with an empty net and we score, making it 3-1 with 16 seconds left in the game. Just wow! Gibson has done so amazingly well during the entire duration of the World Juniors. Some of those saves seemed impossible, but he somehow did it. Best goaltending I’ve seen in this tournament. All of the guys did such a great job! I wish I had better adjectives to use, but I can barely contain the excitement! After I post this, I’ll probably think of more things I have to say, haha.
USA has done it! 🇺🇸 I am so proud, and I am screaming with joy inside right now! USA has the gold medal!
