Wednesday news: Leafs rally to beat Panthers, Canada loses gold-medal game

Despite surrendering the first two goals of the game for the 21st time this season, the Maple Leafs battled back to beat the Florida Panthers 3-2 at ACC on Tuesday. Some hard work by Nikolai Kulemin combined with a spinaround backhand by Alexei Ponikarovsky led to the game-winning goal.

The Leafs are in Philadelphia tonight to take on the Flyers (7pm ET, TSN, AM 640).

In Saskatoon, Canada’s bid for a sixth straight World Junior Hockey Championship gold medal was snuffed out by the Americans, who used an overtime winner from John Carlson to claim the top prize by a score of 6-5. Canada rallied with two late goals from Jordan Eberle to force overtime.
