United States not looking very worldly

USA Hockey was the talk of the Olympics with its stunning run to the gold-medal game. The talk has taken a 180-degree turn at the world championships.

The United States has lost both its games in overtime, including today's 2-1 defeat to Denmark. The U.S. lost to Germany by the same score in the opener.

"Inexcusable, the U.S. should not be losing these games," team captain Jack Johnson said according to the IIHF.com story. "It's inexcusable. At the same time, it's hard to win games when you score just two goals in two games."

The Sabres' Tim Kennedy has just one shot in the two outings.
