Team USA is feeling good after following up a disappointing loss to Russia with an 11-0 drubbing of Austria to move to 1-1 in group play. The win put the Americans in a good position in Group B but now they face a foe coming off a huge upset win.
On Sunday, the Czechs skated away with a shocking 2-0 win over the Russians. Netminder Lukas Parik (LAK) was the star of the show as he had a masterful 30-save performance while his team blocked more than 20 more. It’ll be interesting to see which Czech Republic team shows up, as they lost Game 1 of the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championship 7-1 to the Swedes.
As for the Americans, head coach Nate Leaman is expected to tap Dustin Wolf to start again. The Flames prospect has yet to allow a goal after coming on in relief against Russia and posting a 10-save shutout against Austria. He’ll be looking for the same offensive spurt in that game, which included a Matthew Boldy hat trick.
Here is how to catch the 2021 IIHF World Juniors Group B meeting between the U.S. and Czech Republic.
