A shorter gamethread today since we covered most of the ground in the preview yesterday. The Heat beat the Wolves 3-2 last night in a game that was very back-and-forth, although I'd say the Heat survived gave up ,pre own zone time and chances against overall. That said, Abbotsford blocked a lot of shots, the Wolves missed or were stuffed on a lot of pucks in the scoring area and when they did break through, Danny Taylor was there more often than not.

We're now in the thick of the holiday season and there's no NHL hockey, but there's still lots to talk about. The league made a new CBA offer this week, the World Juniors and Spengler Cup are on, and the Toronto Maple Leafs continue to butcher the handling of their top young players.

Look at that intensity. LOOK AT IT!
Seriously though, if you watch these videos you'll see a good fight, some sick goals, including one disgusting spinorama worthy of being considered for goal of the year.

One of the marquee match-ups of the World Juniors takes place on Sunday night in Ufa, Russia – and the wee hours of Sunday morning in North America – as Team Canada tangles with Team USA!
Team Canada (2-0-0) is coming off a resounding defeat of Germany and a surprising come-from-behind win over Slovakia. Canada's systems were a bit fast and loose against Germany (the only goals Germany have scored in the tournament were against Canada) and the discipline problems that emerged during the pre-competition games exploded against Slovakia. Two Canadian forwards were ejected from the game and the club had to battle back from behind.
