USA Beats Canada again with U18 Crew

If there was any doubt who the true superpower was in International hockey was... it looks to be THE AMERICANS!!!

The Under 18 group, or as we like to call them "juniors", scored a victory against the rival Canadians 5-1 in the Under 18 National Championships in Plzen, Czech Republic.

The scariest moment came at the end of the game when USA's Justin Mercier checked Canada's Colton Yellowhorn from behind and Yellowhorn had to be taken off on a stretcher. Even with a 5 minute major penalty power play for the Canadians, it still wasn't enough to beat the Americans.

Phil Kessel had 4 points (2G 2A) on the night to become the Tournament MVP.

Way to go guys!! Let's make it 3-3 with a victory in the men's tournament starting April 30th!

USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!! USA!!

Sweden beat the Czech Republic 4-2 to win the bronze medal.
