Quick Take: USA 10, Switzerland 1

Team USA destroyed Switzerland 10-1.  Our very own Jim Gatlin was bored after the third goal, but it was a happy bored. After a white washing, we’re not really going to go into specifics, and rip a game apart (though a post mortem following such a game is more fun, than say, a 1-0 loss to Sweden).

Some quick takes as the US prepares to take on Denmark:

  • Auston Matthews really played well. Good to see as the important games begin soon.
  • The US is 2-0-0-1 and can clinch second place by beating Denmark. Sweden took #1.
  • Canada had a tough time putting Switzerland away. Canada. The same Canada that Team USA beat 4-2. Here’s hoping that same Canada shows up in the later stages of the tournament.
