Slovakia ties USA

Continuing with my run of diverse topics to write about, here's a little story off the wire concerning Team USA going down the tubes.

OSTRAVA, Czech Republic - (Yahoo! News)
Defenseman Richard Lintner scored with 6:52 left in a wild second period Monday as Slovakia kept the United States winless at the World Hockey Championships by rallying for a 3-3 tie.
Lintner's equalizer capped a five-goal outburst and came just over five minutes after Pittsburgh Penguins rookie Ryan Malone put the United States (0-1-1) in front on the power play....The Americans must earn a win or tie against Ukraine on Wednesday to reach the qualifying round.
