Boston College’s Johnny Gaudreau has been on fire in the World Juniors. He now has nine points in his last three outings and he scored two goals against Canada in the semifinals.
Gaugdreau and team USA will hope to continue their hot streak against Sweden in the World Juniors gold medal game on Saturday. While Boston is no doubt proud of their Eagles forward for pushing USA over Canada, they may be disappointed in the Bruins’ future goalie, 2012 first-round pick Malcolm Subban, who was lifted during the second period after allowing four goals on 16 shots.
Watch the video above to see all the action from USA-Canada and Sweden-Russia.

Johnny Gaudreau‘s freshman success at Boston College has spilled over into his sophomore year, although the young forward still isn’t quite sure how to describe himself as a player.
Gaudreau said recently that he’d probably describe himself as a playmaker who features a bit of a scoring touch. However, the Eagles forward was quick to credit his linemates for making his job...

Led by Ryan Anderson and James Rahon, Boston College (8-5) enters Saturday's matchup with NC State on a five-game winning streak.
Malcolm Subban had a bad game on the biggest stage he’s ever been on Thursday in Russia. The Canadian goaltender was victimized for four early goals by Team USA en route to an embarrassing loss for Canada in the semifinals of the world junior tournament.
Things got so bad, in fact, that Subban was yanked midway through the second period in an attempt to keep things from getting...
I’m going to start out by saying this: It wasn’t really his fault.
Sure, Malcolm Subban wasn’t exactly on his “A-Game” for Canada’s matchup against the United States in their IIHF World Junior Championship semifinal early Thursday morning, but the stat sheet makes Subban out to be the scapegoat. That’s a far from accurate portrayal.
The 19-year old first round draft...
NC State (11-2) begins ACC play today at 4:00 pm on the road at Boston College (8-5). Here are some notes on the Wolfpack heading into the game.
Team USA should have had its work cut out in the semifinals of the world junior tournament going up against one of the best Canadian teams in recent memory. Instead, the Americans found things to be a walk in the park against a listless Canada squad.
The Americans routed Canada 5-1 on Thursday in Ufa, Russia, helping them advance to the gold medal game of the tournament where they...
Valeri Nichushkin scored 1:35 into overtime to give Russia a 6-5 victory over Canada on Saturday in the bronze-medal match at the junior ice hockey world championships.
Nichushkin broke down the right side and skated in on net alone, scoring into the left corner.
Canada trailed throughout before Brett Ritchie tied it with nine minutes left in regulation to force the extra period...
As a Canuck I am unfortunately required to join our cocky hockey nation in cheering on anything that hits the ice with a maple leaf on it (except for the actual Maple Leafs of course). It's more or less in our constitution to watch all the pre, post, and mid game drivel that TSN throws our way. The World Juniors is our March Madness; the most important sporting event in the world...
It is USA and Canada taking on each other in the semifinals of the World Juniors Championship. Winner advances to the finals against the winner of Sweden and Russia. USA and Canada has become a great hockey rivalry ignited over the past few years not just because they share a border, but because Team USA's talent has finally been able to match up with, or be better than Team...
