Canada's Juniors Off to Semi's

The Canadian World Junior Team defeated Slovakia 3-0 this morning, making their record a perfect 4-0 and giving them a buy into the semi-finals next week.

Canada has depended on a very diligent defensive game and has had some trouble scoring.

The only team in the tournament with a shot at beating them is the USA. Even though Canada had their way with them earlier in the tournament, we at the Four Seamer still feel they have the defensive game to match Canada and the offense to beat them.

Canada does have the edge between the pipes with Carey Price. Matt Zatkoff has not proven himself yet in this tournament between the American pipes as they lost to the Germans in overtime and then to Canada.

The semi-finals will take place on Wednesday.
