Poor start costs Canada shot at world junior gold

UFA, RUSSIA - Ty Rattie's face was hidden under the brim of his Canada hat, his black hoodie offering a little extra protection.
Rattie scored Canada's only goal in a 5-1 semifinal loss to the U.S. at the world junior tournament Thursday but that didn't help ease the sting in the slightest.
"It's something that hurts a lot," said the Canadian forward quietly. "I've lost two WHL championships, I've lost a world junior gold now and I can say it's the worst feeling in the world."
