Flyers prospect Cutter Gauthier scores against Hungary in World Championships.

Cutter Gauthier scored his second goal in two games as Team USA defeated Hungary, 7-1, in the World Championships at Tampere, Finland.

Team USA is 2-0.

The Flyers’ top prospect scored an even-strength goal midway through the second period to increase the Americans’ lead to 4-1. He broke in alone and slipped a shot through the five-hole of Hungary goaltender Dominik Horvath.

“I’ve had a couple bounces come my way in the past couple days,” Gauthier told the IIHF website. “That’s what we’ve been working on so far and I plan to keep doing it.”

Gauthier was plus-1 and played 15 shifts. He had 12 minutes, 11 seconds of ice time. Gauthier had five shots on goal. He also scored a goal in Team USA’s opening victory against defending champion Finland.

Gauthier, at 19, is the second-youngest player on Team USA. Defenseman Lane Hutson less than a month younger than Gauthier.

Flyers defenseman Ronnie Attard had 19 shifts and 15:49 of ice time for Team USA. He had a game-high six shots.

Next for Team USA is Germany at 9:20 a.m. today (Philadelphia time). The Germans are 0-2. The game will be broadcast on NHL Network.

Canada keeps rolling

Canada defeated Slovenia, 5-2, on Sunday. The Canadians are 2-0.

Flyers forward Scott Laughton, who scored in Canada’s first game, did not get on the scoresheet against Slovenia. Laughton had one shot in 17:57 of ice time.

Canada plays Slovakia at 9:20 a.m. (Philadelphia time) Monday.

Washington Hockey Now: The Capitals traded Dmitry Orlov to the Bruins at the trade deadline. Would the free agent defenseman be interested in a return to Washington?

Pittsburgh Hockey Now: Rumors are out there that Toronto GM Kyle Dubas could be heading to the Penguins and Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan could be ticketed for the Rangers.

Montreal Hockey Now: Lessons the Canadiens — and other non-postseason teams — can take from the teams still alive in the playoffs.

Florida Hockey Now: The Panthers are enjoying some down time after eliminating the Maple Leafs. Their Eastern Conference final series against the Hurricanes will begin sometime this week.

Colorado Hockey Now: Artturi Lehkonen followed up his Cup-winning goal with a solid 2022-23 season.

Last night’s result:

The Edmonton Oilers had the big names in Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl but the Vegas Golden Knights had Jonathan Marchessault. McDavid scored a goal, but Marchessault scored three consecutive goals in the second period as Vegas eliminated the Oilers, 5-2, in Game 6.

The Vegas victory means a Canadian team will not win the Stanley Cup. The last time a team from Canada won the Cup was the 1993 Canadiens.

Tonight’s playoff game:

The second-year Seattle Kraken, who eliminated the defending Stanley Cup champion Avalanche in the first round, visit the Dallas Stars in Game 7.

The Kraken won their first Game 7 ever in knocking off Colorado. Former Flyers coach Dave Hakstol is the Kraken coach. Faceoff is at 8 on ESPN.
