Hockey: World Junior Championships

Close game with Slovakia, at least on the scoreboard. Almost 2 games now without allowing a goal.
Still haven't allowed a goal. They won 2 - 0 against the slovaks.

Next up is Sweden...
Did I hear it correctly that this was their 20th straight win at the world juniors?
Yes you did hear correctly, and at 19 they broke the old record.

They did win today, but not easily, which in my opinion is good, don't want to see
them cruise through the round robin, which can bring on over confidence, and
a less than perfect performance. They need to stay sharp all the way through, and
tough close games will do that for them.
They are up against the Americans today. If they can win the next two games they'll win the gold again. Game starts at 11:00 PST.
