As I'm sure you all know by now, Team USA beat Canada last night in overtime for gold in the World Junior tournament. John Carlson, a Washington Capitals prospect scored the winning goal, giving the US their first gold medal in the World Juniors since 2004.
Team USA was certainly fired up in the locker room after the game. Check out this clip of the Battle Cry the team has in the locker room. It was lead by none other than UND's own Danny Kristo!
The top scorers for the US are both on college hockey teams. Derek Stepan, a Wisconsin player, lead all scorers in the tournament with 14 points. Jerry D'Amigo, an RPI player, had 12 points.

What a great tournament by the young Americans. I'm hoping that can carry over to the big boys playing in Vancouver in another month.
