Great glove save by Williams on Stepan. Wide open shot on a 2 on 1. Passe from Motte.
Mavs will go on the power play now.
Leitner and Palmquist with assists
Casey Nelson makes a nice play to remove a puck from danger with an open net behind him.
And now the US scores. Quentin Shore with a snipe.
Team USA switches goalies at the midway point of the game.
MSU is also on the PK as Palmquist went off for tripping.
Per the NCAA they are. They play major junior hockey and their stipend is considered pro pay. There are a lot of stories out there on there, including accusations of some pretty high payments for some standout players.
Mavs back on the power play as Di Paulli goes for slashing.
Stepan on the PK right now
Tyler Motte for USA is a Michigan player whose brother is CJ Motte, the goalie for Ferris State and the early leader for WCHA player of the year, IMO
Williams makes a couple of saves on a good rush by USA after the penalty ended.
Hard to argue with what Motte's done. But Ferris has good players all over, too.
Penalty coming on USA after Gervais gets slammed into the boards.
Long discussion. No minutes on the board yet.
Oh, they're sending him off for a check from behind? It's Adam Erne of the Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior League.
Mavs have a major penalty to work with.
Lehrke just toyed with Stepan a bit with some fancy moves. Haha.
And we're underway in the third.
