    Game over.
    Final minute in the third period.
    Centering pass to the slot by Halama is intercepted by Kyle Connor, taking the puck off the tape of Hascic
    The U.S. dump the puck in straight after, but Skorvanek stops play by freezing the puck
    The U.S. back to full strength. A decent chance for Koch as the penalty expires is saved by Weyrick's left pad.
    The U.S. manage to clear the zone with relative ease
    The U.S. have one man return to the ice
    Slovakia are getting chances on the 5 on 3. A hard shot from Ladislav Romancik is straight at Weyrick who makes the save.
    Time out Slovakia.
    Penalty against the United States. Brandon Carlo gets two minutes for delay of game.
    Play whistled up for a Slovak hand pass in the neutral zone
    Christian Jaros looks for his second goal of the game but Weyrick keeps his wrist shot from crossing the line.
    Penalty against the U.S. Ryan Wagner gets two minutes for a slash on Stanislav Skorvanek after the Slovak goalie had covered the puck
    Simon Petras tries to get a shot away on the turn but it's snuffed out by the U.S. pair of Rosburg and Carlo.
    Slovakia go offside down the left wing
    Juraj Mily tries to fire the puck round the boards in his own zone, but a dodgy bounce forces Skorvanek to cover the puck
    Troubling scenes for Slovakia. A stretcher is called to the bench as Dominik Novak is seemingly in trouble. Nothing seemed to happen on ice, but he is carried off the bench on a stretcher, the second Slovak player to leave the game that way.
