Newsclip®: [Sports] US beats Czechs at worlds to set up semifinal with - seattlepi.com

"MOSCOW (AP) — The United States upended the odds and downed the Czech Republic 2-1 in a shootout to reach the semifinals of the ice hockey world championship on Thursday. Auston Matthews, still only 18, scored in the second period to tie the game and later scored the only goal in the shootout, sliding the puck between Czech goaltender Dominik Furch's legs. Tomas Zohorna gave the Czechs the lead with a penalty shot after Patrick Maroon was penalized for hooking Zohorna on a U.S. power play. The U.S. was outshot 29-20 in regulation, including 8-2 in the first, but piled on the pressure in 10 minutes of four-on-four overtime, forcing Furch to make seven saves, including a stick save on a shot from Chris Wideman. There were two goals and one assist for tournament scoring leader Vadim Shipachyov, who has 16 points from eight games, while Alex Ovechkin scored his first goal since arriving from the NHL playoffs.", www.seattlepi.com
