The U.S. beat Slovakia today 3-1. Chorney, Mueller, and Kessel with goals. The U.S. seemed to carry play much of the game, but the Slovak goaltender played well (the U.S. had 50 shots on goal), and the American players were pretty undisciplined (36 minutes in penalities to 24 for the Slovaks). Mark Evans called a great game. Very poised.
