Team North America offers silver lining for USA Hockey

Team North America's Nathan MacKinnon centre celebrates his game winning goal against Sweden during overtime World Cup of Hockey action in Toronto Wednesday

Hopefully these six games have been enough to convince the National Hockey League that this type of team needs to remain in the tournament going forward.

Larkin sat after being on the ice for two of Russia's goals in their onslaught-which looking back, one was aided by a bad bounce nowhere near him and goaltender Matt Murray trying to play through an unchecked hand injury. If not, at the very least should show the other countries what happens when youth is injected into a best on best competition and that it is not always about a hierarchy and previously set values firmly in place. Jones had tough game with three giveaways. It was a heck of a run by the kids.

"In my opinion they have a tremendous and bright future ahead of them in USA Hockey", McLellan said.

"The Russian population here, especially in Toronto, is huge", said Markov. North America have a glorious chance but Henrik Lundqvist makes a miraculous save on Connor McDavid.

He's 10 years older in many ways. They have scored a tournament-leading 14 goals and have allowed only three goals in three games. But Todd has been a great coach.

"If I get a vote I'd like to do it again", McLellan said.

Yeah, he's the future. "I watch a lot of hockey games". You had guys on the team that you looked up to when you started playing in Sweden.

And Team Canada rolled to another victory. We obviously were counting on them to get out of pool play, but they weren't able to do it. "We can definitely be proud of that".

Phil Kessel took his shot. More importantly, be patient. And, if there are a few U.S-born players deemed elite, Team USA will likely lobby for their help.

That's because the Hawkeyes forgot what got them to 12-0 in 2015 during last week's 23-21 loss to North Dakota State. That could be a problem for the Hawkeyes, who struggled to get any stops last week, especially in the second half.

Fortunately for the Lundqvist, Sweden has already advanced to the semifinals so there could be more opportunities for Lundqvist to exercise his overtime demons and once again bring glory back to his home country as he has in past worldwide tournaments like the Olympics.

Whether they will ever catch the Canadians is a question for another day.

By period's end, North America and Sweden had exchanged 32 shots.

"I had my chance and time (with the Hawks) but I have to look at myself". They'll play host to the Vees on September 30. Maybe that changes after this tournament.

Just like the 2010 Olympics team that saw 13 players 25 years or younger, the United States has a wave of young talent ready to emerge.

"The NHL is about taking away time and space", Babcock said.

MacKinnon provided one last highlight with the overtime victor. The floodgates remained open long enough for North America to earn an unconverted penalty shot from Johnny Gaudreau and a nice backhand goal by Vincent Trocheck all within the first 1:35 of the game.

As former NHLer Ryan Whitney wrote on twitter, "If I'm Johnny Hockey and there wasn't a Brinks truck loaded to the tits sent from the Flames waiting in my driveway I would lose my mind". "We have a lot of respect for them and what they can do with the puck". "You're not supposed to try and check the other team to death.Who wants to watch that?"

Two Canadian-born players that particularly stood out were Nathan MacKinnon and Morgan Rielly. It's easy to forget about Eichel because of Connor McDavid and Matthews, but it takes a special player to get 56 points in his rookie season. "Whatever you're putting together, Gretzky has to be a part of it'". Nate MacKinnon would score on North America's sixth breakaway of the game. "But you find yourself just scrolling through your phone looking at stuff that doesn't really matter too much instead of being in the moment and talking to people face-to-face".
