A Long-Standing Rivalry

A World Junior Hockey Championship in January just isn't the same without a big game between Canada and Russia.

The international rivalry is rekindled in Leksand as Canada faces Russia in the gold medal final for the third straight year. It is the sixth time since 1999 that Canada and Russia are playing for gold. Last January in Vancouver, Canada's junior men's hockey team put on a dominating display to win the gold medal at the 2006 world junior championship with a 5-0 win over the Russians.

Look back at the great junior rivalry between the two hockey powers over the last 24 years.

Note: "Russia" includes the Commonwealth of Independent States team in 1992 and the Soviet Union from 1982-1991.
