Canada forced to settle for silver as stifling U.S. team wins world juniors

The United States topped Canada 2-0 on Tuesday to win the world junior hockey championship.

The Canadians were undefeated at the 2021 tournament and aiming to repeat as gold-medal winners, but had to settle for silver after running into a strong American team.

The U.S., which finished sixth in 2020, won six straight games to capture its fifth under-20 title following a round-robin loss to Russia on opening day.

The Americans are now 4-1 all-time against Canada when going head-to-head for gold at the tournament.

Earlier, Finland beat Russia 4-1 to claim bronze.

More to come.
