07:42 AM ET 02.17 | Taking over Team USA's spotlight hasn't much changed Phil Kessel. "No difference at all," chirped U.S. roommate and linemate James van Riemsdyk. "It's still the same cranky Phil." An endlessly static personality, Kessel continued his 2014 domination on Sunday afternoon, racking up a hat trick in the Americans final preliminary round game against Slovenia, a thorough 5-1 victory at Shayba Arena. Currently the hottest player on the planet, the 26-year-old has already strung together four goals and seven points. ... Rooming during these Olympics with his Toronto linemate van Riemsdyk, Kessel has been consuming the Friday Night Lights TV series on his iPad during off-time from the rink. "We haven't really had much dialogue in the room except when he wants to chirp me now and again," said van Riemsdyk.
