SASKATOON, SK– The United States beat Canada at its own game to win the 2010 world junior hockey championship and foil the host team’s bid to make history.

A smaller, younger, less experienced American team than in previous years, but one that had teamwork and trust in each other to complement its speed, edged Canada 6-5 in overtime Tuesday.

John Carlson ended Canada’s hopes of winning a record sixth straight gold medal in this tournament with a wrist shot at 4:21 of overtime, after the Canadians had scored twice late in the third period to tie it.
