An American Tale

The United States pulled off a 4-2 upset win over Canada to open the 2016 World Juniors. SBN's Boston Bruins site Stanley Cup of Chowder writer, world traveler, and TRUE AMERICAN Sarah Connors made the trip to Helsinki to support Team USA. Thanks to the magic of television and Twitter, Connors, along with friends @androxin and @JoshHuman tell the story of today's game.
