US goes 3-1 v. Russia @ NJEC

The NJEC is over, and the US defeated Russia in games 1, 2, and 4 (8-1, 6-1, 6-0) while losing game 3 (4-6). Given their domination in the other games, I was surprised to see they lost game 3, but Coach Blais said they gave up a couple of soft goals, so there ya go.

Badger forward Derek Stepan finished the camp 7th on the team in scoring with 8 points (1G 7 A) in 7 games. Badger defenseman Jake Gardiner played in 5 games but was held off the scoresheet.
