In The Spotlight

G Ryan Miller​

Arguably the best goaltender in the NHL this season has performed admirably for the Buffalo Sabres. Expected to be the starting goaltender, he brings good size, technical skills and athleticism to the American net.

D Erik Johnson​

Johnson is the best all-around defenseman that America has produced in years. At only 21, he's got a wealth of international competition, representing America in both the World Juniors and the World Championships in 2007. He will play in all situations and against the top lines of other teams.

LW Zach Parise​

Parise has developed himself into a player that is dominant in all areas of the ice. Because of this, he will play on the top line with the American team and get plenty of ice time in key situations.

Sweet. Any more angles?

I'd like to see some of the other goaltenders' masks.
Incredible! I checked out the guy's website and he's got some sick stuff.
Well I saw something on that called Parise the secret weapon of Team USA... maybe that's where he picked that up.
I'm not gonna go as far to say as we're gonna win gold, but if we keep playing like this we have a much better shot at it than I thought we did a week ago.

Great win by the U.S. tonight. What a fun game to watch. My favorite part was the back-to-back-to-back breakaways... very exciting.
That was awesome. Who was that? Parise, Nash, and then someone else, right?
Umm... I was thinking Dustin Brown, Thornton, then Bobby Ryan. Maybe I'm way off though. ??
I'm not so worried about how great Canada is, I'm more worried that the U.S. will come out flat and not bring their A game.
In Rafalsski's defense, he was on the ice basically the entire game. It seemed like he never came off. Maybe he was a little tired and that's why he ended up out of position in OT.
Wasn't it Suter who slid over when he didn't need to? I thought Rafalski was already there and was in the right spot.
Well, 4-on-4 defensive zone probably isn't a top priority in practice, so maybe they were playing a bit of a man-to-man setup. If that's the case, then Rafalski just got beat by Crosby. But if not, then you're right Suter was the one out of position when he slid to the corner to cover Iginla.

And a forward could have easily collapsed down low - I mean it was ot in the gold medal game - defense should've been a top priority.
And that would have been Parise. He was floating in the high slot area when he actually probably should have been much lower, so I agree with you on this one, too.
Haha, very nice.
