In case you needed any extra confirmation, Jonathan Fast is the USA's goalie in these Olympics.
Fast began the first two video games against Slovakia and Russia before getting a sport off towards Slovenia to wrap up pool play. Ryan Miller was simply seconds away from recording a shutout earlier than conceding a aim as the USA won the group.
However that was just one begin and the crease shall be turned back to Fast for the USA's quarterfinal sport against either Slovakia or the Czech Republic on Wednesday.

Coach Dan Bylsma has appeared to favor stability in net in the quick match format, offered no less than that you simply're getting high quality goaltending from your No. 1 guy. Thus far, Quick has given the US just that, giving up three objectives in the two video games he played as well as helping the US to win T.J. Oshie's shootout vs. Russia.
This is Quick's first experience backstopping USA in international competition but as we have seen in Los Angeles, he often is at his greatest when the games are the largest and we all know the Olympics are awfully massive stage.
