WJC Game Night: 1/5
World Junior Championships â€“ Gold Medal Game
Canada 5 vs. Sweden 1
W Dana Tyrell, CAN: Did not play (injured â€“ out for tournament).
G Dustin Tokarski, CAN: Win, 39 saves on 40 shots, *Canada Player of the Game*
Thatâ€™s more like it.
Dustin Tokarski showed why heâ€™s a big game goaltender, stopping 39 of 40 shots to help Canada to their fifth straight World Junior Championship gold medal Monday night.
Tokarski took a shutout into the third period before surrendering his only goal, and outplayed Swedenâ€™s Jacob Markstrom (a Florida Panthers pick to boot) for the win.
