USA Keeps Rollin'

by Anne

Team USA had the first game of the Qualification round today against France. The team started slow, a habit they seem quite comfortable with, but quickly dominated the scoreboard and won 6-2.

Truth be told, the two French goals were scored on the power play while Staffy was in the box Staffy.... no cookies for you.

Alvaro Montoya (my name is Alvaro Montoya, you killed my father...) made his first start for Team USA and ended up making 14 saves on only 16 shots. Team USA fired 41 shots on France's goaltender.

Fortunately Scott Clemmensen has hopped on board and will be a good third option (probably starting) for Team USA. Anything is better than the flaming disaster Craig Anderson was last year.

Never fear, Chris Higgins is here

Is that a chicken?

Thomas Vanek finally scored a point! Not only did he get an assist, he also scored a goal too! Yay! Team Austria defeated Hungary 6-0! Hooray!!

Austria plays Germany on Sunday. Yoyo v. Britney. Team USA plays Russia on Saturday at 2:15 ET.

Oh yeah and Boston and Detroit won. Wowwww?


  1. Hehe, "French Hens" for a logo.

    Hey, you know why my 'Canes are losing, it's because you hate them.

    what can I do, I'm asking again, so you at least "don't hate" my 'Canes?

  2. That logo is pretty cool! I like how they made it. 'French Hens', nicely played, France.

    I hope Staffy's lip feels better after taking a stick to it.

  3. My personal theory on why the 'Canes are losing is that the Bruins may be a better team. Just saying...

    Glad to hear Clemmensen is joining Team USA, I always have a soft spot for BC Alum.
