MOSCOW, May 13. /TASS/. The United States national ice hockey team dominated the ice of the Yubileiny Arena on Friday afternoon in Russia’s second largest city of St. Petersburg defeating team Hungary 5-1 in a group stage match of the 2016 IIHF World Championship.
Following the scoreless first period the US squad put three pucks into the net of the Hungarian team before retreating for the break ahead of the closing third period.
