“I didn’t really set any expectations,” said Pominville, who had a team-high 17 goals into Thursday’s game.
Wednesday’s announcement of the U.S. team featured children wearing each player’s jersey on the Winter Classic ice. Joked defenseman Ryan Suter, “At least [my kid] had the right number.”
The child representing Zach Parise wore No. 8; Parise is No. 11 with the Wild but will wear No. 9 in the Olympics.
