USA White races to 3-0 lead after first vs. Finland

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- The first period was all USA White as Zach Stepan, Connor Clifton and Taylor Cammarata scored in the opening 20 minutes to give the Americans a 3-0 lead after one period.

With Finnish star Teuvo Teravainen in the penalty box, Cammarata controlled the puck just to the right of Finland goalie Joonas Korpisalo. With the defense focused on Cammarata, he sent the puck through the slot to Stepan, who tapped it into an open net at 6:22.

Zach Stepan took a pass from Cammarata and fired a shot from the right circle that got past Finland goalie Joonas Korpisalo.

Just 41 seconds later, Connor Clifton took a long pass and took advantage of a backtracking Finland defenseman to fire a wrist shot from the high slot that beat Korpisalo at 7:03.

Then Cammarata took a pass from Michael McCarron and scored at 10:06.

Back with more after the second period.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
