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.
