If you've seen the movie 'Kicking and Screaming' this will make sense. If not, here's a link so you can better understand the reference. Is there anything more beautiful than some Louis Prima? 

On Wednesday at the IIHF World Hockey Championships, we saw a role reversal -- the Americans looked like the Italian soccer players in the movie, while the Italian hockey team looked like the helpless American soccer players.

If I lost you, I apologize.

Team USA outshot Italy 32 to 9 (!) en route to a 3-0 win. After a disappointing start against Germany, the Americans have now won three straight games, improving to 3-1 [nine points] on the tournament.

Buffalo Sabres forward Jack Eichel was left off the score sheet against the Italians and has three assists in four games. Team USA will have a few days off before they take on Zemgus Girgensons and the undefeated Latvian team on Saturday.
