Best US defenseman by a good margin. Both the goals he was on the ice for he had no fault in. First one, Forbort turns it over at the blue line and then dogs it getting back allowing his man to get behind him for a breakaway pass and goal (flubbed shot on breakaway went in. Bad luck for Gibson/Good break for Finland). Second goal was on Forbort/Gibson again. Forbort loses his man along the wall and gets beat to the front. Gibson went for the poke and should have covered the puck but didn't and it got poked in. Another funky goal.

Trouba should be on the top pair. He's earning the minutes in the first 2 games. It doesn't hurt that Clendening has clearly showed he can't handle it.
