The United States men’s hockey team issued Slovakia a beat down during the Winter Olympics at Sochi. They won the game 7-1, and while it might look like a violation of international good will, goal differential plays a part in breaking ties and teams are always eager to pour on goals.

Despite it looking like a relatively easy game, it must of been physically demanding. Forward Phil Kessel chugged nearly an entire bottle of Powerade on the bench. The Toronto Maple Leafs star was a big part of team USA’s success, scoring one goal and notching two assists in the game.

Eleven players on Team USA had a point in the game.

“Skill level better, hands better,” former American hockey player Chris Chelios said via Canada.com. “Much faster than our group, for sure.”
