Russia Wins Junior Hockey Gold

In an unbelievable comeback, Russia beat Canada 5 to 3 Wednesday night at HSBC Arena in Buffalo to claim the World Junior Hockey Tournament gold medal.  Canada had built a 3-nothing lead after two periods, but the Russians scored five unanswered goals in the 3rd period to complete the upset.

In an earlier game, the U-S squad topped Sweden 4 to 2 to claim the bronze medal.

Tournament officials say the 11-day event in Buffalo generated  ticket sales of 330-thousand, making it the second-most attended World Junior Championship in history.  And with thousands of visitors staying in Buffalo area hotels, eating at restaurants and shopping at stores it had a huge impact on the area economy.
