Team USA stumbled in its opening game of the 2019 IIHF World Championship and since then has been a force to reckon with.
The Americans won their third straight game Wednesday, beating Great Britain 6-3; USA has outscored its opponents 16-6 since dropping its opening game 4-1 to Slovakia.
Quinn Hughes picked up one assist in the win, giving him three helpers in four games. It was an absolute beauty to set up Clayton Keller for the second American goal.
Thatcher Demko, making his second start in net, made 23 saves and added an assist in the win. He wasn't overly tested, but when Great Britain pressed, Demko said no.
USA is now second in Group A with a 2-1-0-1 record, good for eight points, one behind Germany for top spot. Hughes, Demko and company have two days between games with a battle against Denmark set for Saturday.
