Team USA is in a tough division which includes Russia and defending champs Canada.  After going 1-1 in pre-play it was a nice start for the scrappy club who seems to be very hot at goaltender.

Locally we have a representative, Connor Murphy from the Phoenix Coyotes. Alex Galchenyuk appears to be the leader of this squad as well as Gibson who is a stud in net.
