You figure, Belarus has lost their previous games by a combined score of 19-4, and the US had beaten the teams that had beaten Belarus, so it should be a walk in the park.
Wrong. When you fail to play defense, you lose. The US dropped their game in the World Junior Tournament, 5-3. They slide to 2-1 in the standings, with a game against a very good Czech team tonight.
Still no word from ESPN on future programming for the Tournament. It probably depends on the USA's seeding.
