World University Games: Day 2


Information about this one was extremely slow getting over from Turkey, so absent an official write-up, here's the USA Hockey blog post about the game, which offers the best detail of anyone out there.
End of the 1st period in Turkey, and the USA trails 2-0. The 2nd goal coming on the power play. #23 James Telfer has suffered an injury and is out of the game. It has has been a very physical game for both teams, everything that is moving is being hit. Shots in the first were KAZ-13, USA-10. #1 Erik Hudson starts in goal for Team USA.

2nd period – Team USA in the box at 13:13 for roughing. Kazakhstan to the powerplay. Kazakhstan cashes in from the point to make it 3-0. That’s their 2nd goal on the powerplay….Another penalty to the US, this time for hooking. Kazakhstan back on the powerplay……USA kills that one, but takes another penalty for delay of game, shooting the puck out of the rink, with 3:29 left in the 2nd. USA kills the penalty, and the period ends. Shots were 11-9 for Kazakhstan that period. After two, shots are 24-KAZ, 19-USA. USA is 0-3 on the powerplay. Kazakhstan is 2-4.

3rd period – Kazakhstan tallies early to make it 4-0….and then the USA takes a roughing penalty at the 18:51 mark…Kazakhstan connects again to make it 5-0, with it’s 3rd pp goal…11:00 left, still 5-0…USA on the PP with 9:40 left…make that a 5-on-3 now…but the USA can not connect on either chance. Another pp for the USA late in the game, but it’s an 0-fer fday on the pp. Final – 5-0 for Kazakhstan.
Also, here's some video evidence of Borat's revenge.

Penn State Update

Tim O'Brien and Eric Steinour both did well on their faceoffs, with 3-0 and 3-1 records, respectively. Steinour had three shots on goal (of Team USA's 37) playing on a line with Oakland's Kevin Kranker and Adrian's Tom Ciaverilla, while O'Brien added a shot and played with Dearborn's Brandon Contratto and Rhode Island's Kyle Krannich. Both players were on ice for a Kazakhstan goal in the third period - Steinour first, then O'Brien - but both avoided participating in the parade to the penalty box that ulimately played a huge role in Team USA's undoing.

To the USA Hockey recap we go. It's long, because that's what happens when you drop a 15-bomb on someone.
Rohlik, because Ducie is bad at choosing colleges.
ERZURUM, Turkey – Paced by a seven-point effort from Justine Ducie (Sandwich, Mass./ University of Rhode Island/1-6), the U.S. Women's National University Team defeated Turkey, 15-0, here today at the 2011 Winter World University Games. Eight players registered two-point games and 13 players scored for the U.S., which is competing in the women's tournament for the first time.

Team USA took an early 2-0 lead just over two minutes into the first period. Megan Winters (Basking Ridge, N.J./ Northeastern University) notched the eventual game-winner at the 1:14 mark, and Terra Payne (Gaylord, Mich./ Michigan State University) scored just :58 later.

Samantha Redick (Anchorage, Alaska/ Lindenwood University) gave the U.S. a three-goal cushion less than three minutes later, when she netted a shorthanded tally. At the 7:23 mark, Shea Crawford (Selbyville, Del./ Lindenwood University) increased Team USA's lead to 4-0.

The U.S. then scored three times in under three minutes to go up 7-0 in the opening frame, with two goals from Erica Wynn (Anchorage, Alaska/ Lindenwood University) and one from Christina Young (Stafford, Va./ Michigan State University). Shelby Kucharski (Livonia, Mich./ Grand Valley State University) assisted on Wynn's pair and Ducie collected assists on all three tallies.

Emily Nelson (Harper Woods, Mich./ University of Michigan) added a power-play goal with less than three minutes left in the period to give Team USA an 8-0 lead heading into the first intermission.

The U.S. then scored three goals to go up, 11-0, midway through the second frame. Ducie fired a shot past Turkish goaltender Berfu Merve Bolulu at the 2:54 mark, then Ashley Rumsey (West Olive, Mich./ Grand Valley State University) and Ramey Weaver (Eagle River, Alaska/ Robert Morris University Illinois) scored 32 seconds apart.

With just over five minutes remaining in the middle frame, Nelson tallied her second goal of the game and Denise Rohlik (Raleigh, N.C./ Penn State University) scored 1:23 later to lead the U.S. into the third period up, 13-0.

Allysson Arcibal (Vista, Calif./ Lindenwood University) and Tiffany Juha (Cape Coral, Fla./ California University of Pennsylvania) each notched a goal in the final frame to complete Team USA's 15-0 victory.

The U.S. will next face off against Finland on Sunday (Jan. 30) at 8 a.m. EST.
Penn State Update

Today Katie Vaughan was in net, backed up by Heather Rossi. The result was probably the easiest shutout Vaughan will get in her life, as she faced two shots over the entire game, including none in the third period and none from closer than the top of the circles...with Team USA's 15 goals scored by 13 different players, there were plenty of stars today, but Denise Rohlik has to be one of them. She scored a late second period goal to make it 13-0, assisted on the 9-0 and 10-0 goals earlier in the period, and was on ice for an incredible seven of the 15 goals, including Samantha Redick's first-period shorty. Perhaps contributing to that plus-minus: a 17-7 faceoff record...Lindsay Reihl had an assist on Emily Nelson's second period goal and sat for a first-period trip that was successfully killed (obviously).

The favored Canadians dominated Slovakia (47-6 shots on goal) and sat on three first period goals as the final 3-0 margin. Beth Clause had the six-save shutout...Finland turned in a similarly thorough effort against Great Britain, except with double the goals in a 6-0 win.
