Found January 02, 2013 on Goon's World:
Johnny Gaudreau (Boston College) has been on fire the last two games for team USA as he has scored five goals. Gaudreau also leads team U.S.A. with five goals. Today, was a pretty good effort for team USA, as they shutout the Czech Republic and avenged a 5-2 loss to the Czechs from last years 2012 WJC. Rocco Grimaldi (North Dakota) who was the 13 forward and didn't play a shift during USA's last game, played and played pretty well. I believe that the USA coaching staff was trying to send him a message, and to motivate him for the medal round. The move appears to have worked. On Defense, I think that both Seth Jones (Portland WHL) and Jacob Trouba (University of Michigan) were again very good and did a great job setting up the power play. Jones (0g-4a--4pts) and Trouba (0g-4a--4pts) each had four points in today's game. [Box Score] First Period – Scoring: 1, USA, Gaudreau (Trouba, Jones), 11:45 (5x3 pp).
