KOSICE, Slovakia — Patrick Kane scored a goal and had two assists to become the United States' all-time leading scorer at the world hockey championship in 6-3 win over Britain on Wednesday.

US routs France, Russia shuts out Austria at hockey worlds

US routs France, Russia shuts out Austria at hockey worlds The United States rebounded from an upset loss to Slovakia in the opening game at the ice hockey world championship by routing France.

The three-time Stanley Cup champion and two-time Olympian finished the game with 36 points, surpassing the 33 points U.S. Hockey Hall of Famer Mark Johnson had at the world championships. Johnson led the Americans with 11 goals when they won Olympic gold in 1980.

"It's special when you think of all the great American players, all the kids that grow up in the USA, dreaming of playing hockey, dreaming of playing for their country," Kane said. "I've really enjoyed this tournament. This is my third time over here. It would be really nice to win it more than anything. The personal achievements and accolades are pretty nice, too."

The Americans won bronze last year at the world championship in Denmark, where Kane had a tournament-high 20 points and was named MVP. Kane's first appeared at the world championship in 2008, when the U.S. was eliminated in the quarterfinals with a loss to Finland.

Blackhawks’ Patrick Kane sets Team USA career scoring record at World Championship The Chicago winger eclipses Mark Johnson’s record in 42 fewer games.

Kane has helped the U.S. win three straight games in Group A since opening with a loss to the host Slovaks. The Americans have preliminary-round games remaining against Denmark, Germany and Canada.

The British Team, which returned to the top division for the first time in 25 years, had a relatively strong showing after losing to Germany by two goals and getting routed by Canada and Denmark. Mike Hammond scored late in the first period to pull Britain into a 1-all tie. The British team scored in each of the three periods against the U.S. after having only one goal and giving up 20 goals in the previous three games.

Switzerland stayed undefeated in Group B as Andreas Ambuhl scored twice in a 4-1 win over Norway. The Swiss will likely be tested as they close the preliminary round against Sweden, Russia and the Czech Republic.
