It's the last day of World Juniors, which means that after tonight, we'll all have to wait a whole year for the Canadian populace to stake their entire nation's hopes and dreams on the shoulders of a teenaged goaltender.

Last Saturday saw the clash of hockey super powers in the form of Canada vs. USA at the World Juniors, with the Americans skating away with a 3-1 win and first place in Group B. This was a game hyped by many as being only the most recent in a long series of what has apparently become the Biggest Rivalry in International Hockey.
This is far from the only rivalry in hockey; other examples come to mind immediately: Canada vs. Russia, Sweden vs. Finland, Toronto vs. Montreal, Montreal vs. Boston, Edmonton vs. Calgary, and Crosby vs. Ovechkin.

Welp, this is it. Rebounding quite nicely off of a disappointing 2016 tournament, and doing well to pull themselves out of a tough spot against the Swedes last night, the Canadians will take on the United States of America in an epic grudge match at the Bell Centre, to decide the Gold Medal Winner at the 2017 World Juniors. Here's what's going down tonight.

After an almost comeback against the Leafs, the Wings looked to use that little bit of momentum to have a solid California trip. And so, they started by doing nothing at all, and lost 2-0 to the Ducks.

They don't ask how, they ask how many.
A perfect round robin, a squeaky quarterfinal win and the tightest possible semi-final win?
Whatever the case, the Americans are headed to their first WJC Final since their gold medal win in 2013.
