The American husband-wife duo from Plymouth, Minn., has two must-win games left on the schedule to have a shot at making their first playoff appearance at the event.
"It was a pretty important game. Last night wasn't the best so getting back on the ice and getting focused was the plan. We're still trying to get to play as we can," said Maureen Stolt, 34, who works as a business process consultant with Target Corp. "The biggest thing for us is to just get in the zone and focus and pull out these next two games. We're trying to put our blinders on. I like to be mentally tough and that's something I've struggled with this week."
The U.S. needs to win its final two games and get a little help as well. They need one of the three teams above them in the standings (Austria, Czech Republic or New Zealand) to lose both of their final games to force a tiebreaker match.
