USA vs Germany Preview
The United State stumbled out of the gate at the World Championships with a loss to Finland, but have since recovered, reeling off four wins in a row. The latest victory for the Americans came against Norway, 2-1.
Conor Garland and Tage Thompson each scored and goaltender Jake Oettinger supplied 22 saves in the victory.
“All the credit to the guys, this was a good hockey game,” head coach Jack Capuano said. “We knew coming in that this would be a tight game. Norway is a good team and made it tough. We’ve got to improve internally, control the penalties and give ourselves more opportunities moving forward.”
Garland is one of 10 first-timers at the tournament on the USA roster. The Coyotes forward is pumped to gain the experience and he’s helping out in a big way.
“When I got the call to come over here, I think I probably had the fastest answer,” he said. “I told my agent, ‘Tell them yes, right away.’ … We answered in five minutes. There wasn’t much thinking. I was excited for that opportunity. I’m aware how fortunate we are to live in a country like this, so to represent it is pretty special.”
The United States also has wins against Latvia, a surprising Kazakhstan team and Canda on their tournament resume.
“It’s cool, we’ve won some games here, we get to see our flag go up and sing our anthem,” US player Brian Boyle told the USA Hockey website. “It’s a proud team in there, we obviously all have a lot to play for but living in the country we do, with the opportunities we’ve had, we’re so fortunate, it’s certainly a blessing to be able to play.”
The matchup with Germany is their second to last of the preliminary round for the US. They’ll wrap up play against Italy.
Germany came out strong with three consecutive wins, but have dropped their last two to Finland and Kazakhstan. Both losses came by a single goal.
Both teams are chasing Finland in the Group B standings. With 15 points, they are currently atop the group. The game is also big for Germany, which is trying to hold off a Canada (9 points) squad that has not been great, but still has a shot to advance. Latvia is also in the running for the No. 4 spot, also notching 9 points.
The United States has had stellar goaltending during the tournament, allowing just six goals.
Germany finished the 2019 tournament in sixth place, one spot ahead of Team USA, which finished in seventh. Finland won the tournament, beating Canada in the final.
