The American World Junior team took care of business against an overmatched German team en route to a big 8-0 win that, despite the lopsided scored, probably wasn't even that close on the ice.
Hudson Fasching got the scoring started for the US when he scored at even strength at 8:09 of the first period. Then, it was time for the US power play to take over. The US scored five times with the man advantage to take a 6-0 lead into the second intermission. They added two more goals, including another on the power play in the third period. The Americans were very balanced on offense once again, with seven different players scoring the first seven goals of the game.
Anthony Stolarz got the start in goal, though was very rarely tested by the German offense. He was credited with 15 saves in the shutout victory.
The win keeps the United States in first place in their group with a perfect 3-0-0-0 record. They're guaranteed a finish in the top two places in the group. If Canada can take of business against Slovakia, the game between the US and Canada on December 31st, will determine who will win the group.
