This was a brutal and physical game on both sides but the United States was able to pull out the victory over 10-8, but once again the defense for Team USA helped them get the victory. Peter Varellas had another three goal game and now has six goals and leads all scorers for the United States, and Ryan Bailey also had three goals. Tony Azevedo for the second straight game scored one goal, and he only took two shots.
In the first half power play for the United States fell flat and they were struggling to make goals and that led to a 5-3 deficit mid-way through the second quarter.
"That's why we trained for seven months together, to be in better shape than everyone else, and we wore them out toward the end and we closed the deal."
