Denmark Does it Again: 2-1 (OT) over Scott Gordon's USA

Kyle! Frans! Stop fighting! You're ON THE SAME TEAM!

Denmark posted its second upset in two tries at the IIHF World Championships in Germany. This time, Scott Gordon's USA team was the victim, losing 2-1 in OT for the second consecutive game.

Islanders Frans Nielsen and Kyle Okposo each had primary assists on second-period powerplay goals. Denmark's Stefan Lassen scored the winner on his own rebound. Florida's Scott Clemmensen stopped 27 of 29 shots for the U.S.; the U.S. threw 31 shots at Patrick Galbraith.

While some might be tempted to panic about this or that, it's hardly an inspiring roster (PDF) that Scott Gordon is guiding. On that note, here's an interesting Globe and Mail bit about Jaromir Jagr's disappointment that so many young Czechs have declined to participate this year.

USA completes its first round Wednesday with a meeting versus Finland. That one should be IS a must-win to save their medal hopes. (The top three teams from each group advance; first tiebreaker is head-to-head.)
