This was just wrong. So wrong.
Great Canadian hockey stories end up with Canada winning 6-5, not losing.
And great Canadian junior hockey stories end up with Jordan Eberle the hero.
But the ending didn't fit the script.
What are your thoughts on Canada's junior team following their overtime loss to the U.S. at the World Junior Hockey Championship? Have your say in our forum.
Ending didn't fit script
Each and every guy on the team fought as hard as they could.
These guys lost in OT in a game that both teams wanted to win.
We are talking about teens handling a country's worth of pressure and expectations, doing it with courage and class.
This was not the perfect game from either side, but what is important, is the effort everyone involved put out.
They went all out to win silver or gold - they're all winners.
Congratulations boys and Thank You. Hope you achieve your future dreams.

I am a Canadian, I am a hockey fan, but please stop the pandering sugar coat express.

The referee didn't help much in the first period, but the late call against the US in the third gave us a chance to get back in and tie the game.
A couple of goal posts,a crossbar or two, and a stuff-in that hit the side of the net could have made the difference, but showed that Lady Luck was not riding with us last evening.
As on New Year's Eve, when down at the end, our boys did not quit and battled back. Wear your silver medals with great pride, boys, we are proud of all of you.
Did anyone miss the absence of fights?
