2019 IIHF Men’s World Championship Update – U.S. Falls to Russia, 4-3, in Men’s Worlds Quarterfinal

Kane, Larkin and Suter named Team USA’s Top 3 Players of the Tournament

BRATISLAVA, Slovakia – Patrick Kane (Buffalo, New York) and Jack Hughes (Orlando, Fla.) each had a pair of assists and Cory Schneider (Marblehead, Mass.) made 39 saves, but the U.S. Men’s National Team fell to Russia, 4-3, in its quarterfinal game of the 2019 IIHF Men’s World Championship.

“I thought overall we played our best game of the tournament. It’s tough to get in the early hole we did against a team like Russia, who is as good of a team as I’ve seen here over the last three years, but we really dug in and played a great second and third especially. We had a terrific group and while we’re disappointed, the future of hockey in our country is bright.” – Jeff Blashill, Head Coach 2019 U.S. Men’s National Team and Detroit Red Wings

The U.S. finished the tournament with wins in five of eight games (4-1-0-3/w-otw-otl-l) and has gone 19-6 over the last three world championships.
