Team USA wrapped up their preliminary action with a 5-1 win against Slovenia on Sunday. Phil Kessel tallied the first three goals for the Americans, giving him a natural hat trick…check out all three scores below.

His first came just over a minute into the first period, when pulled a nifty move around a Slovenian defender to give himself a good look on net.

Kessel + Pavelski: BFFEs.

Finally, the one that sealed the hatty came on a rebound made possible by a JVR deflection in front. All Kessel had to do was finish the job.




America, eff yeah.
