I just saw the rebroadcast of last night’s World Junior Hockey Championship. John Carlson’s goal in OT was nothing short of beautiful, to give us (USA) the 6-5 victory (over Canada). I didn’t see much of the rest of OT, being busy with washing dishes and making tea, but I caught the goal. This is a nice change of pace, seeing as Canada has owned this for years. BTW, Carlson currently plays for the Hershey Bears, the farm team for the Washington Capitols (my home team, and team of choice). Excellent! Here’s Video (the last half is replays):

What I saw of the rest was good on both sides. Canada fought well, a worthy foe.
