In a back and forth game, the Americans came out on top by a score of 2-0. The Canadians go home with the silver medal, with one of the deepest teams in history.
As for Holloway, he once again played an excellent game. In my eyes, the puck was mostly in the offensive zone when he was on the ice. He had a few big hits throughout the game and was hunting the puck down on the forecheck. Holloway also had some great zone entries; he dumps the puck a bit more than I would like but he usually gets to it first. Although, he shows some great instincts when he carries it in.
Overall, Holloway had a great tournament in my eyes. He ended up with only a goal and an assist, but played a strong defensive game and was always providing an impact in some sort of way. I’m very excited about his future with the Oilers.
