can the Leafs let the 'nucks borrow Pogge?

Hockey action yesterday – Canada’s World Junior team defeated Russia 5-0. With a controversial “goal” from Russia earlier our boys finished off the night leaving no room for dispute, Canada won the Gold. Coach Sutter is 12-0 in the last two years as coach of the world junior team. Justin Pogge started and won ALL 6 games of the tournament. it was a great day for hockey in vancouver.

Finland defeated USA to come up with Bronze and their goalie was named best goalie of the tournament during the awards presentation.

The canucks were able to hang on to a 3-2 victory over the blackhawks – a game which saw 2 penalty shots come in the same period and Jarkko Ruutu being successful on one of them. His lil brother plays for Chicago and they both were stars of the game. It wasn’t half as exciting as the world cup action but a win is a win, and vancouver should be pleased with that (for now).

    I couldn’t believe Jarkko’s moves! He’s on the shoot-out list for sure now eh. I think he was just showing up his kid brother Tuomo.
