Lineups for USA White vs. Finland

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- USA White will juggle a few of its lines and defense pairings for Monday's game against Finland, while the Finnish lineup will look mostly the same from its first game, a 6-5 overtime win against USA Blue on Sunday.

Collin Olson will start in goal for USA White, and play about half the game. Jon Gillies, who started Sunday in a 4-2 loss to Sweden, will play the second half of the game.

Joonas Korpisalo, a Columbus Blue Jackets prospect, will start in goal for Finland.

Sweden holds off USA Blue for 4-3 victory

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- USA Blue made a strong push late for the tying goal, but Sweden was able to escape with a 4-3 win Monday at Herb Brooks Arena.

Alexander Wennberg gave Sweden a 4-2 lead with a shot from the slot that rocketed off the crossbar, dropped behind goalie Anthony Stolarz and dribbled across the goal line at 10:13. After a replay review, the goal counted.

USA Blue got within one on a nice individual effort by Vincent Hinostroza. The Chicago Blackhawks prospect carried the puck down low in the Sweden end, beat two Swedish players in a battle along the end boards, went behind the net and fed the puck to Will Butcher above the left circle. His shot beat goalie Marcus Hogberg at 17:43 to make it 4-3.

Wild second sees USA Blue rally to within 3-2

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- A wild second period saw Sweden extend its lead to 3-0 before USA Blue rallied for a pair of goals to make it a 3-2 game after 40 minutes.

Besides the goals, however, were serious injuries to three players. USA Blue forward Stefan Matteau was knocked out of the game when he was hit hard in the head by Sweden's Anton Lindholm. Matteau turned in the defensive zone to receive a pass, and when he started up the ice, Lindholm appeared to launch himself into Matteau, making contact with the head of the New Jersey Devils prospect. Matteau remained on the ice for a few moments before skating off the ice and walking back to the locker room.

Lindholm was given a five-minute major for charging and a game misconduct.

Sweden up 2-0 after first on Collberg's PP goals

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- United States coach Don Lucia stressed improvement on the penalty kill with his players Monday morning, but after one period against Sweden, the USA Blue squad obviously needs more work.

Sweden got a pair of power-play goals from Sebastian Collberg to take a 2-0 lead after one period.

Lineups for USA Blue vs. Sweden

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- When USA Blue plays Sweden on Monday here at Herb Brooks Arena, there will be a slightly different look from its game Sunday against Finland, a 6-5 overtime loss.

Chief among them is Adam Erne replacing Nicolas Kerdiles at left on the team's most productive line from Sunday. Erne will skate with center Daniel O'Regan and right wing Riley Barber, while Kerdiles will play with center Dominic Toninato and right wing Vince Hinostroza.

The other main change comes in goal, where Thatcher Demko will start. He relieved starter Anthony Stolarz on Sunday and allowed five goals on 19 shots. Stolarz will play the second half of the game; he stopped 14 of 15 shots Sunday.

Finland coach seeing early promise from his squad

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- With five games in seven days, Finland coach Karri Kivi is approaching this week's National Junior Evaluation Camp like a mini-tournament.

"It's like a tournament," Kivi told NHL.com. "I'd like to see how they handle it."

They started off nicely Sunday with a 6-5 overtime win against USA Blue.

Kivi, who coached Assat to the SM-liiga championship last season, said he didn't follow Finland at the 2013 World Junior Championship, when the team finished a disappointing seventh. Because of that, he said what happened in the past is done and it's time to move on.

O'Regan shows scoring prowess among his attributes

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- One of the early standouts at the USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation camp has been Daniel O'Regan, who scored twice in USA Blue's 6-5 overtime loss to Finland on Sunday, and nearly had a hat trick.

O'Regan's line -- he skated at center between Nicolas Kerdiles and Riley Barber -- looked the best of any of the two USA squads. The trio combined for two goals and five assists.

"The line with O'Regan and Kerdiles and Barber, I thought, was very good," USA coach Don Lucia said Sunday. "That's something we were hoping to see, them generate offense, and they did [Sunday]."

As cuts loom, evaluation process continues for USA

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- The third day of the USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp was more education in how coach Don Lucia wants his players to play.

USA White was the only group to take the ice Monday in preparation for their game against Finland (4:15 p.m. ET) here at Herb Brooks Arena. USA Blue stayed off the ice while getting ready for their game against Sweden (1 p.m. ET).

The big lesson for the day was on the penalty kill. Both games Sunday turned on how the two USA squads handled the opposition power play. In USA White's 4-2 loss to Sweden, they allowed three goals on nine Swedish power plays.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.

— Panthers forward Jaromir Jagr on scoring the 717th goal of his career to tie Phil Esposito for fifth on the NHL's all-time goals list after a 4-3 win vs. the Lightning on Sunday
