Video- Recap Of Team USA Win Over Team Canada In The World Junior Championship

in case you missed it yesterday like me due to a touch of the flu...

from USA Hockey,

In front of a record crowd of 44,492, Brady Tkachuk (St. Louis, Mo./Boston University) and Kieffer Bellows (Edina, Minn./ Portland Winterhawks) scored in the shootout and Jake Oettinger (Lakeville, Minn./Boston University) didn’t allow a shootout goal as the U.S. National Junior Team overcame a two-goal deficit to defeat Canada, 4-3, here tonight in its third preliminary round game of the 2018 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championship at New Era Field.

“What a tremendous atmosphere and a terrific bounce-back effort by our players,” said Bob Motzko, head coach of the 2018 U.S. National Junior Team. “This was just another moment in the U.S.-Canada rivalry and something our players and staff will enjoy for years to come. We’ll enjoy this win tonight but come tomorrow our focus turns to Finland.”
