After going with 13 forwards and 7 defensemen against the Slovaks and absolutely dominating en route to a 7-1 victory, Team USA will be going with 12 forwards and 8 defensemen against Russia. Dan Bylsma seems to have decided that having the ability to roll four defensive pairs is a bigger advantage than playing Blake Wheeler for 4 minutes a game.

In goal there are no changes, as Quick will start again and Miller will back him up, with Jimmy Howard in the press box.

There were a few changes in the formations at forward and defense though, so here's the roster:

Forwards

Zach Parise - Ryan Kesler - Patrick Kane
James van Riemsdyk - Joe Pavelski - Phil Kessel
Dustin Brown - David Backes - Ryan Callahan
Max Pacioretty - Paul Stastny - T.J. Oshie

Defensemen

Ryan Suter - Ryan McDonagh
Cam Fowler - Kevin Shattenkirk
Justin Faulk - John Carlson
Brooks Orpik - Paul Martin

Goaltenders

Jonathan Quick
Ryan Miller
