The USA just completed their first game of pool play, routing Germany by a score of 8-0. While many will point to the fact that the USA were playing a weak opponent, they truly looked like an elite team in their dismantling of Germany. USA dominated play, allowing just 26 shots on goal by Germany, compared to the whopping 46 taken by the US.
JT Miller, wearing the ‘A’, notched the seventh goal for the US, and played a fairly strong game. Miller finished with a goal, two shots on goal, and a +1 rating. Miller also went 9-4 on face offs.
The next game for the USA will be tomorrow against Russia. Peter Ceresnak and Slovakia will take on Canada. The full schedule is available on the IIHF website, and all games are being televised on the NHL Network.
