The 2017 IIHF World Juniors Hockey Championship gold medal game between Team Canada and the United States was one that is going to be remembered by hockey fans for a very long time. The two teams went back and forth all game long, with a lot of the excitement taking place in the third period as the two teams combined for four goals in less than six minutes to open up the period.
The two teams couldn’t decide on a winner through regulation, so they needed the extra frame to find the gold medalist. However, nothing was decided in overtime, so they went to the shootout and that’s where the US sealed the deal.
With the victory, USA earned their fourth gold medal in World Juniors history and their first since 2013.
However, even though the US won the game, certain American fans were not pleased with how it all ended.
Despite losing the gold medal, fans were very happy with their team’s performance.
Hopefully these two have another epic showdown at next year's tournament in Buffalo.
