Tough exit for Team USA, which includes forwards Joey Crabb and Nate Thompson of Anchorage, today at the World Championships in Helsinki, Finland.
The Americans fell 3-2 in the quarterfinals to the host Finns, who scored the game-winning strike with just 8.8 seconds left. Finland scored twice in the last seven minutes -- ouch.
Crabb had an assist on the game and was +1 with one shot in 13:44 of ice time. Thompson was -3 with one shot in 11:26.
