Wow.

Another WJC classic, this time with Canada giving up four one-goal leads, then scrambling back to tie the game with just over five seconds left on a goal by Edmonton prospect Jordan Eberle - his second of the game. After a scoreless 10 minute 4-on-4 overtime, Tokarski stopped two Russian shooters and Eberle got the winner for Canada in the shootout to send Canada on to a 6-5 victory and the Gold Medal Game vs. Sweden.
