USA White leads Finland 5-0 after two periods

LAKE PLACID, N.Y . -- USA White continued to roll in the second period, pushing its lead against Finland to 5-0 on goals by Ian McCoshen and Michael McCarron.

McCoshen and Taylor Cammarata, his teammate with the Waterloo Black Hawks of the United States Hockey League, combined to make it 4-0. Cammarata entered the Finland zone and threw the puck across the ice to McCoshen, who was alone on the right side. McCoshen grabbed the puck off the boards and threw a shot on net that eluded Finland goalie Joonas Korpisalo at 8:04.

USA White got a five-minute power play late in the period when Finland defenseman Ville Pokka was given a match penalty for a hit from behind on Andrew Copp that sent the Winnipeg Jets' draft pick hard into the end boards. Copp appeared to hit his shoulder or head into the boards, but after staying down on the ice for several moments, was able to skate off on his own.

On the ensuing power play, McCarron harassed Finland defenseman Mikko Vainonen deep in the Finland zone and caused a turnover. Tyler Motte swept in from the right side and fired a shot that Korpisalo stopped, but McCarron crashed the crease for the rebound goal at 16:31.

Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.
