United States 9, Norway 3: Patrick Kane (Chicago Blackhawks), Dylan Larkin (Detroit Red Wings) and Cam Atkinson (Columbus Blue Jackets) each had three points to help the United States earn their sixth consecutive victory at the 2018 IIHF World Championship.
The win gave the United States (4-2-0-0, 16 points) a three-point lead over Finland in Group B. The U.S. ends its round-robin schedule against Finland on Tuesday and has outscored opponents 32-6 in its past five games.
“We have a lot of guys that can make plays, a lot of talent on the team, and hard workers.” Kane, who scored two power-play goals, told the IIHF website. “Sometimes you don’t except these games to get so high in scoring, but it’s good to see everyone getting in on the action. It wasn’t just one or two guys. It was everyone.”
Alec Martinez (Los Angeles Kings), Anders Lee (New York Islanders), Neal Pionk (New York Rangers), Colin White (Ottawa Senators) and Charlie McAvoy (Boston Bruins) scored. Nick Bonino (Nashville Predators) had two assists. Goalies Keith Kinkaid (New Jersey Devils) and Scott Darling (Carolina Hurricanes) combined to make 18 saves.
