Defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere, a player who may one day quarterback the Flyers' power play, scored a power-play goal as the United States cruised past Germany, 8-0, in the IIHF World Junior Championship tournament Thursday in Ufa, Russia.

"I'm glad he's playing in this tournament because it's a chance to see how he responds.

" "I'm normally a pretty laid-back, kind of nice guy off the field, and I've been known to be the one to hit people into the ground, finish blocks, and get after it out there," McGlinchey said.
