USA downed by Germany

First game of the World Championships Germany best USA 2-1.

USA plays Denmark on Sunday.

Depending how USA does will greatly impact my opinion of Blashill.

USA downed Italy 3-0.

Larkin had 2 assists and Howard had a shutout with the heavy workload of 9 saves.

Larkin is in a 5-way tie for 3rd in tournament scoring with 7 assists in 4 games.

Howard has a 1.69 GAA after player 3 games.


France gave Canada a scare and were leading the game for almost an entire period. Canada pulled back to win 3-2.

Well circumstances also different. This is just round robin compared to final group stage.

While the US team beat the Soviets, I should point out the win against Finland sealed the gold medal.

Finland downs USA 2-0 in the quarterfinals.

There is so few established NHLers on team Finland, its amazing how they always dig in and play well in world tournaments.

Larkin led USA with 23:18 minutes of icetime.

Looking at the average shift times, the Fins were taking much quicker shifts (10-15 second range).




Czech's lost 3-0 to Russia as well. Mrazek sat on the bench.
