How to watch USA vs. Austria: TV channels, live streaming, start time for the 2022 World Juniors matches

After walking past Germany and Switzerland in their first two games, Team USA will look to make it three games in a row on Saturday when it takes on Austria in the World Junior Championships.

After a slow start in their last game against Switzerland, the Americans scored five second-half goals en route to a 7-1 win. Six skaters scored for US First-liner Carter Mazur scoring twice and adding an assist in the win.

Defensive star Luke Hughes added three assists in the win. The Devils’ 2021 draft picks lead America by five points through two games, and after clocking an icy 21:18, Hughes quickly became the most reliable force for Team USA.

“I think just sticking to our game plan and getting deep shots and getting shots through sort of broke them in the second period,” Hughes told reporters after the Switzerland game. “A lot of our offense stems from that.”

Austria will not only be looking to pull off a big surprise but also get their first win in the tournament. It dropped the first game of group play to Germany 4-2 and was blown away by Sweden on Friday.
