In the Battle of Little Foot v. Britney, Little Foot Wins

by Anne

See glossary below for nickname references.

This morning, Teams USA and Austria met in Berne, Switzerland, with Team USA coming out on top.

The game started out fairly even with the teams each scoring once in the first, then the USA scoring once in the 2nd. However, Team USA exploded with four goals in the third period that did in the Austrians.

Team USA outshot Austria 38-26, but were actually outshot 12-7 in the 2nd frame by the Austrian team.

Three of the US goals were scored on the power play, two with the two man advantage.

Team USA's next game is Wednesday against Sweden (yikes). Austria must win its next game against Latvia to avoid the relegation round. The two teams meet Wednesday.

Staffy scored the game winning goal

Little Foot charges the net, but is denied

Brownie, yer doin' it wrong

From the recap from the IIHF website:

Austria cut the deficit to 2-1 at 14:26 thanks to a gaffe by Esche. The goalie came out of his net to clear the puck off the sideboards, but gave it away to Peinter, who shot it in from inside the blueline. The cheers from the drum-beating Austrian fans were as long and bold as Peinter's beard.

Long and bold, indeed

Jackie boy, Brownie, it would've been OK if you had let Britney score


  1. Dear Lord, what is on Thomas Vanek's chin?

  2. Beard man is not Thomas Vanek.

  3. What the hell is that?? My god, I don't think I've ever seen a stranger hockey beard...
