It was finally Luke Hughes, the younger brother of Quinn and Jack, who delivered his team in overtime. The young defender, drafted with the fourth round of the 2021 auction by the New Jersey Devils, came alone in front of goalkeeper David Kickert, before beating him with a low shot. The latter will not have much to reproach himself for, he who made 36 saves in the defeat.

On the sequence, the young hope of the Montreal Canadiens Sean Farrell created a turnover in his zone before pushing the puck towards his teammate.

The Austrians had however taken the lead 2-0 shortly after halftime, thanks to successes from Benjamin Nissner and Paul Huber. The Americans, however, began their comeback with a net from Kiefer Bellows, just 17 seconds after that of Huber.

Adam Gaudette is the one who forced an extension in the third period.

He himself shook the ropes, on the power play in the third period, to complete the score.
