USA defeats Sweden 10-2

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Mario Lucia, Jacob Trouba and Sean Kuraly scored in the third period as the United States finished its rout of Sweden 10-2 in a game at the National Junior Evaluation Camp.

Shayne Gostisbehere led the U.S. team with a pair of goals and an assist, and Jacob Trouba, J.T. Miller, Tyler Biggs and John Gaudreau each had a goal and an assist.

John Gibson had an excellent game in net, further solidifying his position as the team's No. 1 goalie for the 2013 World Junior Championship.

Mika Zibanejad and Joachim Nermark had the goals for Sweden. Niklas Lundstrom let in all 10 goals as his team had no backup. Oscar Dansk was out with a knee injury, and Alexander Wennberg, a center projected to go in the first round of the 2013 NHL Draft, dressed as the emergency backup goaltender.

Back with more from the locker rooms.

Quote of the Day

I was surprised. I knew I got it. It's tough. You never know how hard it is until it registers on the gun. I got pretty much all I could into and you just hope for the best.
