The Americans had to settle for the silver medal, but there was still plenty of good that came out of their success, including a renewed interest in hockey.
“I was upset that USA lost because I think it would’ve been even better [for the NHL] if it had won,” NESN insider James Murphy told John Chandler on Monday’s edition of SportsDesk. “It did a lot for USA hockey, I’m not going to kid myself there, but … I think it’s gotten a lot of people more psyched up for the stretch run in the NHL here, and I think they’re really going to embrace the NHL down the stretch.”
