Playing in his fifth straight world championship, Detroit Red Wings forward Dylan Larkin helped secure an important victory for Team USA as he scored the overtime winner to propel the Americans past Team Finland!
His goal was his first of the tournament; he had two assists in Team USA’s victory on Sunday over Team France. With nine points in 10 games during last year’s World Championship, he helped Team USA capture bronze.
Team USA is led by Red Wings head coach Jeff Blashill and assistant Dan Bylsma. Forward Luke Glendening is also on the roster.
“We’re taking steps in the right direction and that’s great to see,” Blashill explained afterwards. “They’re (Finland) a tough team to play against and I give our guys a lot of credit. They battled hard all game long and deserved to get rewarded with points.
