Thursday, 05.10.2012 / 12:38 PM ET
Kyle Okposo did not add to his tournament point total (two goals, one assist), but did lead US forwards in icetime.
"We've got a lot of work to do," said Pacioretty after. "We haven’t really put together a full game like we want. Once we do, we’ll be a very powerful team. We need to find a way to play for 60 minutes, and we’ll find success."
The win vaults the U.S. into third place of Group A with a 2-1-0-1 (W-OTW-OTL-L) record for eight points.
