Canada is all set to play against Russia in gold-medal match of IIHF World Junior Championship 2015 at the Air Canada Center earlier on Monday.
It is the fourteenth time in history of the event those squads have met in WJC title match, and the 8th time since the year 1996. Russia defeated Sweden 4-1 goals in the semifinal match on Sunday while Canada defeated Slovakia 5-1.
Joshua Morrissey, the Canada defense player, told that this is very special, Russia and Canada; it is one of those top rivalries in hockey. It is always very intense. Listening the fans shouting ‘Canada’ and ‘We want Russia’ at last was quite cool. It is very inspiring.<!–more–>
Canada keeps a 7-6 lead in the championship games. However, Russia has beaten Canada in playoff round at last 4 events that even includes bronze-medal match in 2013 and 2014. Connor McDavid, the Canada forward, said that this would be very unbelievable. He dream of getting this scope and they have it in front of them. But they could not look too far ahead because we have a <a href=”http://www.iloveeverton.info”>great Russian team next</a>. This is going to be quite cool.
Joe Hicketts, the Canada defense player, told that they knew that they have to play a complete sixty minutes of hard hitting and fast-paced hockey against Russia. They anticipate them to play a fast game too. They play more of a North American-style of hockey on this NHL-sized ice. They would have to get pucks deep and hopefully withstand some of their push-backs.
