Just shoot it between the mask of Huet and the post, really impressive.

Turned a bit ugly in the 3rd but good two periods from the French. Tomorrow USA-CAN if I heard correctly, should be interesting to see if the US keeps on improving their game.

nice solid win. We still need to be better defensively though.

USA wins 7 - 2. France play really good for the first half then ran out of gas and stop playing after the fourth goal. Next game is important to remain in the elite, we have to win it.

I tell you if the 2 french players didnt go for a change in the end of first period when Okposo got the breakaway, if they didnt fell asleep for few USA goals and if the refs didnt suck so bad for the first half of the game this could've had all the makings of a surprise.

But its all "if", glad to see France putting up a competitive team though.

Well, I'm glad the Canadians aren't used to playing on big ice either. Maybe we'll actually have a chance tomorrow. The offense was better than I expected it to be.

Or if they hadn't given up 7 goals...if they'd scored 8...or if Team USA's bus broke down on the way to the game...

Blah, blah, blah, the French got waxed by a better team.

France was better than I expected. Pretty creative off the rush and some big bodies. They have some talent from some top-flight leagues around the globe at it showed. Huet is also a decent goaltender.

From a U.S. perspective, there is some work to do down low on the defensive side of the puck. You can tell this is a young, offensively oriented crew. Good transistion though, and the big guns came to play. Good balance as well. Lasch didn't look out of place either. I'd rather have a guy like that in the line-up than a fourth line NHLer.

Game was pretty much dead even until France went down 5-2 and seemed to give up. Without those weak penalty calls it could have easily been 3-2 at that point.

I wouldn't exactly use the term "waxed".

I would say that it's the fourth goal at the end of the second that took them out. They didn't play at all in the third.

Well the penalties were generated because France were on the back foot most of the game. For the life of me I'll never understand IIHF refereeing but there isn't a lot to take from this game going forward.

I just hope the US team doesn't get too full of themselves based on this, because Canada will bring them back to earth real soon if they do.

I disagree with the people saying that the US team doesn't look so hot this year. I think for this tournament it's a solid roster.
