USA vs. Austria: Dwell rating, updates, highlights from 2021 World Juniors


Eight players return from the USA's 2020 team, which left the Czech Republic empty-handed after a disappointing sixth place. These players, along with the rest of this year's team, are now entering a Boxing Day meeting with another loss at the 2021 edition. After a tough 4: 3 defeat against the Russians at Christmas, the Americans are back on the ice against Austria.

While the Austrians may not have the power and talent of Russia, in the wild perspective of Marco Rossi, they carry a bonafide star. He's an offensive threat every time he's on the ice and could destroy US defenses. In 56 games last year for the Ottawa 67, he scored 39 goals and 120 points – top scorer in the OHL (and CHL) when he won the league's Red Tilson Trophy for Most Outstanding Player.

Dustin Wolf will be between the pipes for the Americans and will make his first start of the tournament. (The Flames Prospectus exonerated Spencer Knight on Friday night after the Panthers Prospectus allowed four goals in 12 shots; Wolf stopped each of the 11 shots he saw). According to coach Nate Leaman, he would still give the go-ahead on Saturday, but a good game could change the narrative and cause Wolf's starter network to lose. He was a standout player for the Everett Silvertips last year, earning a GAA of 1.88 and a savings of 0.935 percent in 46 games en route to the WHL's Best Goalkeeper Award, the Del Wilson Trophy.

Wolf will hope the United States team that shows up on Saturday is the same, making a comeback at the end of the third half to make it a one-goal game against Russia – not the one where the result is The first place went wrong 4: 1. It's a streamlined list for Leaman, including Tyler Kleven who's messing with the defense.

10:58 pm – – Best chance for the Austrians when Marco Rossi feeds a wide open Tim Harnisch into the slot, but he rings the doorbell.

10:51 p.m. – TOR. Zegras again. This time he finds daylight over the netminder's shoulder. What a shot of the Ducks view. USA leads 5-0.

10:49 pm – – Halfway through the game, the US knocked Austria 34-4 out.

10:46 p.m. – PP-ZIEL. Brendan Brisson (VGK) fires the one-timer from the right circle. An explosion that goes right under the glove. USA leads 4-0.

10:44 p.m. – – Add Matt Boldy (MIN) to the "ringing from the pipe party". For the United States, it's maybe five now.

10:44 p.m. – – USA gets a power game. They fought against Russia with the benefit of man.

10:38 p.m. – TOR. Trevor Zegras (ANA) gets the puck in the right circle and shoots the shot from the point to the goal. USA leads 2-0.

10:31 pm – – Second period in progress.

First period: USA 1, Austria 0

10:14 p.m. – – The Americans beat the Austrians 22: 3 in the first half. What a turn of events from Friday.

10:12 pm – – Cam York (PHI) rings one from the post. Americans are buzzing as time runs out in this time.

10:11 pm – – The Americans fly and have another chance when they get through the Netminder and sit in the paint before Luis Lindner knocks them away.

10:08 pm – – Trevor Zegras (ANA) wrenches you out of the pipe. The game continues and the Americans rush into the net and try to push the puck in (shot went off the post and was whistled). The referee (is Wes McCauley in the bubble?) Says, "We're good. Thank you."

10:04 – GOAL. The Americans have a good zone entrance and the pass seems to go off the stick and skate of Drew Helleson (COL), goes into the net and squeaks past goalkeeper Sebastian Wraneschitz. (By the way, that goal was credited to Alex Turcotte, Arthur Kaliyev and I think Trevor Zegras too, before going to the rightful owner). USA leads 1-0.

9:56 pm – – Cole Caufield (MTL) has an empty net chance as the goalkeeper is not in position, but a great game by defender Philipp Wimmer.

9:53 pm – – At the 10-minute mark of the first, the Americans score their 10th shot on goal.

9:50 pm – – Johnson takes an undisciplined sentence, but Austrians couldn't capitalize.

9:44 pm – – The majority of the game has so far been spent in the Austrian zone. In the first five minutes the shots stand 6-1 in favor of the United States. On Friday evening they only got the first shot after more than 10 minutes.

9:39 pm – – Arthur Kaliyev (LAK) has a good chance. The US looks a little better than it did on Friday evening.

9:37 pm – – Continue to play. Referees greeting teams at the face-off point might be my favorite thing of the tournament.
