A Disappointing Loss For Team USA

COPENHAGEN, Denmark – The 2018 U.S. Men's National Team outshot Sweden, 41-20, but fell in its semifinal game, 6-0, at the 2018 International Ice Hockey Federation Men's World Championship

“Today’s outcome is disappointing, especially with how pleased we were of our play in the first and third periods,” said Jeff Blashill, head coach of the 2018 U.S. Men’s National Team. “I thought our effort was there but Sweden was able to capitalize on special teams and that was the difference. Our guys know there’s still a medal at stake tomorrow so now it’s time to pick ourselves up and find a way to win a hockey game.”

The United States (5-2-0-2/W-OTW-OTL-L) will play in tomorrow’s (May 20) bronze medal game against the loser of tonight’s Canada-Switzerland semifinal. Puck drop is set for 3:45 p.m. local time (9:45 a.m. ET) in Copenhagen at Royal Arena and will be televised live on NHL Network.
