World Juniors today 2020: Live scores, TV schedule, updates from Sunday's medal games

Sporting News

The medal games are set.

Battling for gold in a rematch of the one-sided onslaught in the group stage is Canada seeking revenge against Russia. Canada and Russia entered as two of the favorites to win the tournament and have lived up to the hype.

For bronze, we have Sweden and Finland hoping not to go home empty-handed in the Scandinavian showdown. The Swedes are coming off their one and only loss in the tournament to Russia in OT while Finland went 2-1-1 in the group stage but has managed to stay alive with a 1-0 win over the United States, knocking them out of the tournament in the quarters.
