After yesterday's 5-2 win over the Czech Republic to advance to the Semifinal in Sochi, Team USA forward and St. Louis Blues captain David Backes had a solid, solid quote. He and his line of Ryan Callahan and Dustin Brown have arguably become USA's best line through the tournament. Why? Backes believes it has to do with meat.
Meat I say? Yes, meat. Brian Murphy of the Pioner Press captured the magic in a tweet:
Backes is a phenomenal quote: "I’m the beef. Dustin Brown’s the pig or pork and then (Ryan) Callahan’s the chicken. That’s our meat line"

Just another shining example as to why NHL players are the best.
