      Sorry for the Delay!!<br><br>The fifth day of the
      World Juniors brought together Canada and Russia. Prior
      to the game even starting, reports surfaced that the
      Russians had ambushed the Canadian team with snowballs at
      the teams' hotel. The fight continued on the ice as
      Jarrett Stoll scored shorthanded and Stephen Weiss scored
      on the powerplay to leave the Canadians up by 2
      after 1 period of play. While on a two-man advantage
      early in the second period Igor Knyazev cut the
      Canadian lead in half. Just over six minutes later,
      Canada's Mike Cammalleri continued his hot streak and
      extended the Candian lead, this time, for good. Alexander
      Polushin would score last in the second to bring the
      Russians within a goal again, but two goals in under two
      minutes in the 3rd period sealed the deal for Canada, who
      went on to win 5-2. This game was scarred with bad
      incidents, as Tampa Bay Lightning top prospect Alexander
      Svitov was caught on tape spitting at Canada's Brian
      Sutherby, and late in the 3rd period Alexander Tharatukin
      was ejected for hitting from behind. The Slovaks were
      hoping to continue their hot streak against the Swedes
      and got off to a good start in the first as Marek
      Svatos continued to put the puck home. The score
      remained the same through the first and second, and into
      the third. Under four minutes into the third it was
      once again Marek Svatos of the Kootenay Ice adding to
      the Slovak lead. Up 2-0 it looked as if they Slovaks
      were cruising to their third consecutive win, but with
      4 minutes to go Magnus Hedlund scored on a
      powerplay to bring the Swedes within one goal. Lethbridge's
      Tomas Kopecky took a late interferance call which
      proved costly as with 22 seconds left Jonas Nordqvist
      put home the game typing goal as Sweden and Slovakia
      would settle for a 2-2 tie. The third game of the day
      had the USA facing Belarus and amazingly enough,
      after one period it was 1-0 Belarus as they scored just
      over two minutes into the game on a powerplay. Early
      in the second period the Americans tied it up at
      one, but five minutes later, the Belarussians once
      again connected on a powerplay and led 2-1. With about
      five minutes to go in the second period Kris Vernarsky
      evened the score at 2 with a rarity at this tournament,
      an even-strength goal. The third period was all USA
      as they pounded home 3 goals to put the game out of
      reach, but they could have made it four, as they missed
      an opportunity on a penalty shot. The final game of
      the day saw the Swiss play the French and it was the
      same old story for the French who found themselves
      down 7-0 after 40 minutes. Jerome Plumejeau came in to
      relieve Landry Macrez in front of the French net and
      played rather well in the third period, stopping 9 of
      the 10 shots he faced.

        Well is there a coach more stupid than Guylain
        Raymond from the Rimouski's Oceanic? Well i know that Joe
        Canale is back but frankly, Guylain sucks big time. He's
        always the victim and is always crying about the ref
        calls and his team is always loosing because of his
        injured players...bla bla bla....Shot the f... up and
        make a man of your self. I can't believe that this
        serious organisation end's up with such a disgrace to the
        coaching of this team. You don't like Real Paiement
        fine... but don't involve the population of Rimouski in
        your personnal agenda geek! Too much jealousy knowing
        that Paiement is gonna coach at the all star game in
        Riki...looser! <br><br>Zorro...
