LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- U.S. coach Don Lucia has spent the better part of this week's National Junior Evaluation Camp advising his players about what can happen when you give a talented team like Sweden an excessive amount of power-play opportunities.
So far, it doesn't appear the lessons are sinking in.
"That's about eight power-play goals in three games," Lucia said. "Hopefully they got a little hockey IQ so you can figure that out."
Through three games against the United States, facing a pair of split-squad teams and a cut-down group, Sweden has scored eight of its 12 goals with the man-advantage, including two on seven attempts in a 4-0 victory Wednesday.
