“We knew we had to get off to a good start today,” said coach Nate Leaman after the 7-0 win. “Our schedule was different today and it was important for us to adapt quickly. I’m happy with how the team started the first period and kept it going.”

Team USA practically went through the group game. In the first three competitions, it prevailed 19:2 against Germany, Switzerland and Austria. Sweden will be by far the toughest test for the Americans so far.

The Swedes also roll into Sunday with a win against Austria. They played on Friday and won 6-0. Sweden previously defeated Switzerland 3-2.

The winner of this game will most likely finish No. 1 in Group B and go into the knockout stages well prepared.

Carter Mazur tracker

In each game we will be highlighting a player from Team USA to follow.

For the duel against Sweden we focus on Carter Mazur. The University of Denver product has scored two goals in a row. His four goals in the tournament rank behind only Canadian Mason McTavish, and his six points tie for fourth among all skaters.

The Red Wings selection for the 2021 third round was fantastic, playing with Thomas Bordeleau and Landon Slaggert at the top. If Team USA wants to win against Sweden, they need this line-up to be at their best.

1st period

The first line with Mazur, Slaggert and Bordeleau is compared to Sweden’s top pair Helge Grans and Simon Edvinsson and the Swedes close it so far. Mazur had a quiet opening time of 20 minutes, neither looking good nor making it. This matchup with the top line and Sweden’s best defensive pairing will be a fight to watch closely.

End of 1st period: USA 1, Sweden 0

22:44 — After a third, the USA go into the break 1-0. A very competitive, back and forth 20 minutes from both teams. Berard’s power play goal has made the difference so far. Dominic James will be called upon to interfere at the end of the third, so Sweden will start the second with their first overtime game.

22:41 — A standout shift from Logan Cooley, Matt Coronato and Matt Knies. The most sustained pressure in the Sweden zone that the US has had to date. A Knies shot looked like it would hit the pipe and Luke Hughes had a great chance that went over the shoulder at Wallstedt.

22:38 — Emil Andrae creates a trajectory with a deft pull and pull to make room up front to remove a defender, but his shot clatters off the barrel. A perfect little pull to get away from the incoming stick and get a clean shot.

22:35 — Sweden provides multiple defensive turnovers for the US. The Swedes are fast and take advantage of some lazy overtaking maneuvers by the Americans in their own zone. The crisp passing of the Swedes also stands out.

22:31 — Both sides have chances but nothing since Berard’s goal. Mbereko was strong but his rebound control was a bit shaky. Look for Sweden to net bodies and pucks.

10:21 p.m. – GOAL! USA took advantage of the man advantage when Brett Berard brought the puck to the net from the side and scored his own rebound past Wallstedt. A skillful power move that takes a pass from the point and immediately attacks Wallstedt. The first shot is stopped, but Berard persists and rams in the second try.

22:19 — Liam Ohgren gets his stick in Luke Hughes’ skates and is called to trip. First power play for the USA.

22:18 — Sweden just had a wide open net, but they couldn’t cast it. Mbereko stopped the first shot, but the puck bounced out of his glove. A Swedish forward had the puck on his racquet in the crease behind Mbereko but it rolled off the blade.

22:10 — Early chance for Logan Cooley, who had the puck in the top of the crease on his stick but couldn’t get a clean shot. A pass had gone under the stick of a Swedish defender and straight to Cooley in front of Jesper Wallstedt.

foreplay

21 clock – A few changes for Nate Leaman’s crew. Charlie Stramel comes out while Hunter McKown moves back in. Kaiden Mbereko is back in the fold after sitting out the Austria game.
