Sorry, but if you were doing anything earlier this evening other than watching Team Canada vs. Team USA, you missed out big. In one of the most exciting hockey games I've seen in a while, the Canadians and Americans traded chances right up until the final buzzer, with Canada ultimately coming out on top by a score of 5-3.

It would appear to be a one-sided victory when you look at the scoreboard, but Team Canada's 4-1 win over Team Finland was close, hard fought one. Finland, desperate to avoid dropping three straight games to open the tournament, kept the game close until late in the third period, but ultimately couldn't contain Canada's explosive offence.

Team Canada is off to an excellent, albeit expected start at this year's World Juniors tournament, winning their first two games with ease. That being said, anything short of a regulation win tonight could put Canada in danger of being leapfrogged by Team USA in the Group A standings.

Earlier today in the pregame post, I talked about how Florida wasn't that dangerous a team. Heading into tonight's matchup against the Leafs, the Panthers had scored the second fewest goals in the NHL, and were just slightly above average in preventing goals against. They should have been a team the Leafs could handle, but couldn't be taken lightly. They've got enough talent to burn you.

After snapping a three game skid in Dallas on Tuesday, the Toronto Maple Leafs will look to build their own winning streak against the Florida Panthers this evening. As the Panthers are one of the teams nipping at the heals of both Toronto and Washington, the Leafs would do well to secure a win in regulation and grow their playoff buffer.
