No Miracle: U.S. 3, Russia 2

Eddie Cahill as Jim CraigWhat is it about no-name American rosters and their matchups against Russia?
Ruegsegger, van Riemsdyk (tourney’s leading scorer), and Mike Carmen with tallies today, Carmen’s the game-winner, in the Americans’ 3-2 victory over Russia. Meanwhile, Sweden stunned the Canadians 4-3.
A number of you emailed me overnight wondering what wager I had with Dmitry Chesnokov for this game. The answer rhymes with Filet-at-Smith-and-Wolenskys.
The 9-pt. U.S. has clinched first in its group and is assured of a place in the World Junior semifinals. Their opponent? Either Canada or Finland.
The U.S. will skate again on Monday against Finland.

  1. That’s one good wager. Time for Dmitry to pay up!

    It kills me that we don’t get to see these early games.
    Enjoy that cut of meat!
