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 out of hand with the U.S. taking a 4-0 lead that they would obviously not relinquish. It’s tough for American hockey fans to comprehend how big of a deal this is in Canada. The Canadian team was supposed to be one of the best in recent memory. The NHL lockout afforded the Canadian team the opportunity for players like Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Dougie Hamilton to skate with the Canadians in the quest for their first gold medal since 2009. That all came crashing down early Thursday morning, though. The Canadians were flat-out embarrassed by the upstart American team, a club that no doubt gained confidence from a ...

Malcolm Subban Yanked In Second Period Of World Junior Semis Matchup Against USA

  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...

Tyler Seguin Overseas Highlight Video

Potential Candidates For Bruins' Amnesty Clause

There's been word that the NHL has submitted a counter proposal to the NHLPA (which makes #5 now?) that includes two amnesty clauses in the new CBA. For those who don't know what an amnesty clause is, it allows teams to eliminate a bad contract (or two) under certain conditions. I believe this is also cap-penalty free, but the particulars aren't known.  Again, this...

BC’s Johnny Gaudreau Shines Again As Team USA Shocks Canada to Advance to Gold Medal 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...

Why Canada will beat America, again

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...

GARTH: Wild First Period

The first period of the bronze medal game between Canada and Russia has had an Edmonton Oilers flavour to it. The Russians beat Jordan Binnington for three goals on five shots. Steve Spott yanked Binnington and replaced him with Malcolm Subban. Mikhail Grigorenko's new liney, Khoklachyov opened the scoring for Russia. Then, Nail Yakupov PPG made it 2-0 Russia ...
