The US Team got things started on the right foot yesterday, beating Switzerland 3-1 in their opening game. Behind a solid effort from goalie Ryan Miller and a beautiful end to end goal by David Backes, the US team looked good, if not spectacular. The 3rd period was dicey as the US seemed to quit pressuring the Swiss team.
I think this team does have a lot of potential; will we see them medal? That still might be a long shot.
