Ryan Kessler says the team has to score early on. “We’ve got to jump on them early” That’s not what has happened.
U.S. coach Ron Wilson says of today’s game the following:
“[Canada is a] hard to beat a team twice in a tournament like this. But we’ve beaten Canada, and we’ll play better than we did the last time we played against them.”
The game today could be decided in the first quarter. USA dominated Slovakia in the semi finals on Friday by scoring 6 goals in just 13 minutes. USA’s score would hold up ending in a 6-1 win.
