Pens Take Game Two
Georges Laraque started the play that broke the 2-2 tie in the third period. After a quick shot towards the net, Gary Roberts dished it right off to Maxime Talbot, who put it home for the game-winner.
Worlds get fiesty
Ilya Kovalchuk and Anton Stralman were roughing it up Saturday, but it was David Backes and Anssi Salmela who really went at it yesterday. The USA-Finland game was horribly officiated (the side of the net? really?), and it led to things getting chippy. By the end, Backes and Salmela had gloves off and were swinging. The two are now automatically suspended each team’s next game.
US fans can watch the Worlds over at WCSN.
