Buff Time: Former Hawks and current Jets defender / winger Dustin Byfuglien was left surprising in the United States 3-0 upset loss to Europe on Saturday.

"All I do is come here, put on a suit and go to work when I said," Byfuglien said Sunday. "I am waiting for a chance, that's all."

Coach John Tortorella is yet to announce US programming for a showdown with Canada on Tuesday night, but Byfuglien is likely to play in the winner-wort.

"We are here to represent our country and to be able to put on the jersey of the United States with the group of guys we have, it would be a great honor," Byfuglien said.

New look: In the wake of the defeat of the United States, Totorella lines dragged forward during Sunday's practice. The Hawks Patrick Kane skated on a line with center Derek Stepan with Justin Abdelkader now on the left wing.

"We lost the game if you think there will be changes, of course," said Kane. "We had some chances on the power play, had some good looks, but we still want to create more. "
