USA vs Norway Preview
The U.S. sits just one point behind Finland in Group B play, and is tied with Germany in second place. The Americans lost the opening game to Finland, but they have beaten Canada, Kazakhstan and, in their latest match, Latvia in a 4-2 win May 27, making it three straight.
Brian Boyle, who, at 36-years-old is the team’s oldest player, scored one of the U.S.’s four goals, and he said after the win that things are rolling along swimmingly for the group, particularly considering the circumstances.
“The message that we’ve had, we’ve executed,” Boyle said. “We’ve tried to get better each game. With 13 forwards and 7 defensemen, you have different guys playing with different people, but we’re a hard-working team and play above the puck. We’ve tried to earn our offense, and it’s paid off for us.”
So far, the United States has exceeded all expectations, and the team seems to be having fun doing it. “It’s cool,” Boyle added. “We’ve won some games here; we get to see our flag go up and sing our anthem. It’s a proud team in there. We obviously all have a lot to play for, but living in the country we do, with the opportunities we’ve had, we’re so fortunate. It’s certainly a blessing to be able to play.”
On the other side, Norway is coming off a 4-2 loss to Canada on May 26. Thomas Valkvae-Olsen and Mats Roselli-Olsen scored for Norway, while goalkeeper Henrik Haukeland stopped 38 shots.
“We knew they were hungry but a little disappointed that we let in a goal that early because we knew they’d come out hard,” Norwegian forward Mats Rosseli Olsen said after the loss. “That slowed our game down, and we had to adapt. They played a good game and deserved to win.”
It was Norway’s second straight loss in the tournament, so the team will be looking to stop the bleeding here. The Norwegians have scored three goals their four contests, so putting more points up than they have in previous games will be crucial.
