For the second time in three years the Americans will take home a bronze medal from the World Hockey Championship.

Nick Bonino, Trevor Lewis and Charlie Coyle had the goals.

Connor Hellebuyck made 39 saves for the shutout as the Americans defeated the Czech Republic 3-0 on Sunday afternoon.

The Czech Republic had plenty of opportunities to solve Hellebuyck including a four-minute power play in the second period.

The hosts also out-shot the Americans 16-1 in the third, but could not find the back of the net.

Bonino scored the eventual game-winner at 7:14 of the first period putting home the rebound off of Brock Nelson’s shot for his second goal of the tournament.

Ondrej Pavelec made 13 saves in the loss.
