POWER PLAYS PERFORM AS U.S. BEATS ATLANTIC
Six different players scored goals and Dylan Larkin had a goal and two assists as the United States earned a 6-3 win over Atlantic on Sunday afternoon at the 2013 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge.
The game was dominated by the power play, with both teams scoring three times with the man advantage. The Americans finished three-for-seven on the power play, while Atlantic was three-for-nine.
Sonny Milano, Jared Fiegl, Nathan Billitier, Austin Poganski and Ryan Collins joined Larkin as goal scorers for the Americans, who jumped over idle Quebec and into first place in Group B with the second win over Canadian opposition in as many days.
The U.S. beat Ontario 6-5 in a shootout thriller in their tournament opener on Saturday.
Collins finished with a goal and an assist, while Chris Wilkie chipped in with two helpers.
Duncan MacIntyre (Sydney, N.S./Quebec, LHJMQ), Matthew Highmore (Dartmouth, N.S./Saint John, LHJMQ) and Clark Bishop (St. John’s, N.L./Cape Breton, LHJMQ) did the scoring for Atlantic, which dropped to 0-2 following its 5-2 loss to Quebec on Saturday.
MacIntyre and Bishop had a goal and an assist each for the Canadian side.
The Americans dominated the shots on goal, outshooting Altantic by a two-to-one margin, 46-23. Antoine Landry (Caraquet, N.B./Miramichi, NBPEIMMHL) finished with 40 saves in the Atlantic goal, while his American counterpart, Edwin Minney, made 20 stops.
First place in Group B will be on the line Sunday night when the U.S. meets Quebec in Victoriaville in the final game of 2012 (7:30 p.m. ET), while Atlantic makes its third attempt at win No. 1 when it takes on Slovakia in the early game at the Colisée (1:30 p.m. ET).
