Your moment of Zen: Julia Mancuso of USA; Alpine Ski
Julie won a Bronze in the Super Combined Alpine Ski, but she Gold in our hearts!
On Thursday, the second day of the World Juniors, Jacob Trouba scored the 2nd goal as the US romped 8-0 over Germany, a day after Canada beat the Germans 9-3. The tone was set when the US scored 19 seconds into the game. Eight different players scored a goal.
The US faces a much tougher task Friday (9 AM Eastern on NHL Network, replay 8 PM EST) against Russia, who will want to do better after Slovakia surprised them by going to overtime before losing, so Russia only earned 2 pts instead of 3.
After Russia the US will face Canada on Sunday (4:30 AM Eastern on NHL Network, replay 8 PM EST) and finish the opening round with Slovakia on Monday (5 AM Eastern on NHL Network, replay 8 PM EST).
U-S-A! U-S-A!! U-S-A!!!
Team USA up 2-0, outshooting the Slovaks 20-1. Merril had one assist on the 1st goal, I think.
Also, Gary Thorne is announcing == Awesome.
