The US team are feeling good after a disappointing loss to Russia with an 11-0 beating against Austria to move to 1-1 in the group game. The victory put the Americans in a good position in Group B, but now they face an enemy who takes a huge upset victory.
On Sunday, the Czechs skated with a shocking 2-0 victory over the Russians. Netminder Lukas Parik (LAK) was the star of the series as he put in a masterful performance of 30 saves while his team blocked more than 20 more. It will be interesting to see which team from the Czech Republic comes forward as they lost the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championship opener 7-1 to the Swedes.
As for the Americans, head coach Nate Leaman is expected to call on Dustin Wolf to start over. The Flames prospect has yet to concede a goal after being relieved against Russia and making a 10-save shutout against Austria. He’ll be looking for the same offensive push in this game, which included a hat trick from Matthew Boldy.
Here’s how to attend the 2021 IIHF World Junior Group B meeting between the United States and the Czech Republic.
