"I don't think it gives us a whole lot of momentum, to be honest," Krikorian said. "We talked at the beginning of the week [about] how these four games weren't going to make or break us. The most important thing about these four games is just learning from every game that we play, and from the series as a whole. The first game [of the Olympics] is still three weeks away. It's not like we're playing tomorrow ... I'd be very surprised if the game in London on July 30 isn't a one- or two-goal game. I think [the Hungarians] are better than how they played here."
Krikorian undoubtedly did see some positives from Team USA, which led 4-3 at halftime before breaking the game open in the third quarter. Defensively, the Americans were stout, allowing just one goal in the second half. Starting goalie Betsey Armstrong made seven saves.
