United States, Finland trade goals in first period

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Finland's Aleksi Mustonen and the United States' Ian McCoshen traded goals in a first period that saw the teams finish the first period tied 1-1.

Mustonen opened the scoring at 9:43, following his own rebound and poking it past American goalie Anthony Stolarz.

McCoshen tied the game when his shot from just inside the blue line went off the stick of a Finnish player and bounced past goalie Joonas Korpisalo at 14:04.

Meghan Duggan relishes chance to skate with U.S.

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- The American players who skated Thursday morning weren't scheduled to play Thursday against Finland, but they did get a special treat. Joining them for practice was Meghan Duggan, a member of the U.S. national women's team.

"I'm here for two weeks working a camp and staying at the [Olympic] Training Center," she told NHL.com. "I told the director of our program that I'm going to be here and she spread word to JJ [Jim Johansson, national junior team general manager]. He grabbed me the first day I was here and said listen, Thursday, 10:45, if you want to jump out with the guys, you can. I'm just honored. USA Hockey is a big family. It was great for me to be out there."

Lineups for United States vs. Finland

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- The United States will go with a new-look roster Thursday against Finland. Among the changes is a heavyweight line that features Henrik Samuelsson centering left wing Boo Nieves and right wing Adam Erne.

Anthony Stolarz will start in goal for the U.S., with Thatcher Demko backing up. Coach Don Lucia did not attend the morning skate for extra players, so there's no way of knowing if Stolarz will play the full game, or split time similar to how Lucia used Jon Gillies and Demko on Wednesday against Sweden.

For Finland, Olli Maatta will miss his second straight game. Also sitting out is Samu Markkula. Joonas Korpisalo will start in goal.

Burke sees plenty of promise in Canadian goalies

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Hockey Canada enlisted Sean Burke to help with its Program of Excellence with the hope that some of the success he's had working with NHL goalies as the Phoenix Coyotes' goaltending coach will help the next generation of Canadian goaltenders.

So far, Burke said he's been impressed by what he's seen from Eric Comrie, Zachary Fucale and Jake Paterson, the three goalies skating with the team this week as part of the USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp.

"We have three excellent goaltenders here, all guys that are capable of playing very well," Burke told NHL.com. "This is a great opportunity for us to observe these guys."

U.S. goalies Gillies, Demko praised by coach

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Though the United States lost 4-0 Wednesday to Sweden, coach Don Lucia said he was happy with the play of his two goalies, starter Jon Gillies and Thatcher Demko, who each played half the game.

"I thought they both made some real good saves tonight," Lucia said. "I'm not going to fault our goaltending in any way for the result of the game."

Gillies, a Calgary Flames prospect, finished with 19 saves on 22 shots in his 30 minutes. Demko, considered by some to be the top goaltending prospect in the 2014 NHL Draft class, stopped 16 of 17 shots.

Collberg twisted his right knee during the second period of a game Monday against the USA White squad. Sundqvist sustained a neck injury when he collided with a metal stanchion in the final seconds of the second period.

Sweden blanks United States 4-0

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- A scoreless third period brought to an end a 4-0 win for Sweden against the United States.

It was a disappointing for the U.S. in its first game with a cut-down squad. The Americans had three power plays in the third period, but rarely was able to create any quality scoring chances.

Tornkvist goal puts Sweden ahead of U.S. after first

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Tobias Tornkvist, one of the top Swedish players eligible for the 2014 NHL Draft, scored the lone goal of the first period as Sweden took a 1-0 lead against the United States after one period here at Herb Brooks Arena.

Sweden out-shot the U.S. 13-7.

Each team had chances on its power play, but the American penalty killing was better than in previous split-squad games against Sweden. The U.S. killed both Sweden chances, including a hooking call on Stefan Matteau 20 seconds after Tornkvist's goal.

Canada's Comrie strong in first game after surgery

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- For his first game in nearly seven months, Eric Comrie acquitted himself quite nicely.

The Canada starting goalie, who last played Jan. 9 and had season-ending hip surgery in February, finished with 37 saves on 40 shots in Canada's 5-3 defeat of Finland on Wednesday.

He allowed a goal on the first shot he faced less than a minute into the game, but was strong throughout, including backstopping Canada to a perfect 6-for-6 effort on the penalty kill.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
