Sans Rullier

Even though it turns out he had a few games left, Bridgeport released Joe Rullier from his PTO today. If I don’t get the quote in the gamer, I’ll put it in the postgame; short version of the official line is to let the kids play, and Rullier wasn’t as good as they’d hoped.

Big day for the U.S. with a 3-2 win against Russia; an assist apiece for Okposo and Rakhshani. And if you missed it in the comments, check out Robin Figren going all Robert-Nilsson at the WJC.
