\'09WJ: Canada\'s Golden Game
2009 IIHF World Junior Championships
Ottawa, Canada
   
     
United States
Sweden
Russia

It was a good night for the Panthers prospects. Not great but good. Both Jacob Markstrom (silver) and Evgeni Dadonov (bronze) won medals at the 2009 World Juniors. For Markstrom, it wasn't the right color.

Russia outpaced Slovakia 5-2 in the bronze medal game while Canada used a quick goal to get them kick started and propel them to a 5-1 victory over Sweden Monday night.

While Markstrom didn't finish with the gold, he did finish with some other impressive medals.

Markstrom was named one of Sweden's three best players and was named the tournament's best goalkeeper as selected by the Directorate. Markstrom finished the tournament with the best save percentage (.943) and had the second lowest goals against average (1.61). Five of the eight goals that he did allow came off the power play.

For Dadonov, the Russian forward finished the tournament with two goals, 5 assists and was a plus-6.

Jacob Markstrom
Canada 5 - Sweden 1: It's now five in a row for the Canadians as they earned it in Monday's final against Sweden.

Despite a strong game from goaltender Jacob Markstrom (28 saves), Sweden could not beat Canada's Dustin Takarski until the final period. And that was despite receiving seven power play opportunities (0-7). On the other side, Canada found the back of the net consistently throughout the game and that would give them the victory.

It only took 38 seconds for the Canadians to jump on the board. Off a scramble in front of the crease, P.K. Subban fired the puck past Markstrom as Canada was on the power play early in the game. That would be the only goal of the first as Markstrom and Takarski stopped 12 shots apiece.

Angelo Esposito would give the Canadians a two goal lead with the only goal in the second. He fought off a check along the boards by the goalline, made his way to the front of the net and backhanded the shot over Markstrom's left shoulder.

With Sweden receiving a penalty at the end of the second period, Canada opened up their lead to 3-0 as Cody Hodgson blasted a low shot from the point past Markstrom just 40 seconds into the final period.

Finally with 11:30 to play in the game, Sweden got on the board. Joakim Andersson took the puck, wrapped around the back of the net and fired a shot high into the left part of the net.

John Tavares had a chance to give Canada the three goal lead with 2:55 left in the game as Esposito found him open in front of the net, but Markstrom got a piece of the puck and deflected it up high.

While Tavares was denied the chance to make it a three-goal lead, the hero from the semis was not. Jordan Eberle gave Canada a 4-1 lead shooting the puck into the empty net from center ice with 1:53 left in the game.

Hodgson made it 5-1 with his second of the night as he shot the puck into the empty net from the blueline.

Markstrom finished with 28 saves on 31 shots and had a roughing penalty 13:13 into the second period as he was going to the bench for a delayed call. He bumped into Stefan Della Rovere.

Evgeni Dadonov
Russia 5 - Slovakia 2: A bronze will have to do for the Russians.

Two days after coming just 5.4 seconds from defeating the Canadians in the semifinals, Russia officially ended Slovakia's cinderella run through the tournament with a 5-2 victory over the Slovaks.

The Russians would score the only goal of the first period as Pavel Chernov beat netminder Jaroslav Janus from in close 4:30 into the game.

Maxim Goncharov would give Russia a two-goal lead as Evgeni Dadonov found him coming out of the penalty box on a breakaway 5:56 into the second.

Slovakia found the scoreboard as Martin Stajnoch beat Vadim Zhelobnyuk with a point shot 10:14 into the period. Russia regained a two-goal lead heading into the final period of play as Columbus' Nikita Filatov scored with 32 seconds to go in the period, firing his own rebound past Janus.

Filatov scored his second straight, giving Russia a 4-1 lead, as his shot found the back of the net with 8:49 left in the game.

2009 draft eligible prospect Tomas Tatar scored his seventh of the tournament for the Slovaks with 2:59 remaining in the contest bringing the score to 4-2 with a power play goal but Dmitri Kugryshev salted away the victory with an empty net goal 1:06 later, 1:53 left in the game.

Dadonov finished with the assist in the contest.
