WJC | Russia (1) – USA (3)

Arik Krause

Russia (1-1-0-0) @  United States (1-1-0-0) Not nearly as a rivalry as Canada/Russia but still two powerhouses coming together between Russia and the United States.  In what has become a very important game for the landscape of Group B with every team being tied at 1 win, 1 loss. Whoever […]
