Congratulations to the Finnish juniors for capturing gold in the 2014 World Junior Championships in Malmo, Sweden, where there sure were a lot of blond-haired fans in the seats.
The Finns scored in overtime against Sweden, and such a disappointed bunch of kids were the Swedes as they stood along the blueline and watched their Helsinki rivals celebrate.
Earlier, the Canadian boys weren’t exactly doing cartwheels after dropping a 2-1 decision to the Russians in the bronze medal game.
It must sting like crazy.
Win or lose, I’m in awe of every player in this tournament. To be able to play at this level……..
Next year it’s in Montreal and Toronto. Can’t wait.
