Team Canada had probably the worst collapse in the history of the world junior hockey championships with a 3-0 lead going into the 3rd period only to see Team Russia score 5 unanswered goals to stun the 'home' crowd of Canadians in Buffalo. Canada looked to secure their 6th gold medal in their last 7 appearances in the gold medal game but fell short on epic proportions.
Team Canada now get their 2nd silver medal in a row while the Russians win for the first time since 2003 when the tournament was in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Many fans in at the game were in tears and the Canadian players looked completely dejected but have nobody to blame but themselves. There were very few Russian fans at the HSBC arena and what looked like a certain loss turned into an unbelievable comeback.
