I think the broadcast said that Russia is now 10-0 against the USA in medal round games since the current format was adopted in 98...

I stepped away from a 1-0 lead to return to a 2-1 deficit. What happened?

Clearly, it's your fault.

I can't believe the US can't beat the Russians in these semi-final games.  Ever.

Good chance of not getting a medal again this year.

We have way better results against Canada.

Guess we'll get an early game tomorrow

Pool A seemed like the stronger pool,  but goes unrepresented in the medal game,  so I guess not

IMO, Russia just out played USA.  That second period was a butt whipping after the first 3-4 min.

Agreed, the second was terrible.  I'll say it again, I think US left some very good pieces off of this team.  By no means was this the best U20 team the US could have fielded (obviously excluding NHL players).  Conner, Roslovic, Tuch, Keller, Bellows, Garland, etc.  Some of those boys should have been on this team.  A lack of offense showed when it mattered.

Completely agree in the 2 losses the US scored I believe 1 goal sure could have used some of the talented pure scorers that are on that list. The coaching choice also may have ended up being a poor one as Wilson basically said postgame he didn't prepare for Russia at all and knew nothing about their team or their players.

As someone mentioned earlier in this thread for a goal scorer Boeser can't even find space to even get a shot off so far in this tournament. Very surprised by that.

Especially considering how much space he has in college.  That being said, after noting the improvement in tournament performance from Schmaltz last year to this year, I would expect Boeser to be significantly better next year.

He only gets the opportunity next year if her returns to UND...................
