Group A

Slovakia 2 Finland 1

A day after being shelled by Canada, Slovak goalie Denis Godla stood on his head, stopping 37 of 38 shots to steal the victory, despite the Slovaks only putting 12 shots on goal.

Offense, especially with the man advantage continued to be a huge problem for Finland. Today, they went scoreless in nearly 11 minutes of time on the power play, and only managed one goal for the second day in a row.

Germany 0 Canada 4

Germany gave Canada much more of a battle than most were expecting. Canada built a 2-0 lead in the first period thanks to a power play goal and assist from Connor McDavid. The Germans actually controlled some stretches of play in the second period, and had a few nice scoring chances, but couldn't cut into the Canadian lead.

Group B

Denmark 1 Sweden 5

One day after playing to hard-fought tie against Russia, Denmark struggled against Sweden. They fell behind 3-0 in the first period and gave up another goal just seconds into the second period. William Nylander scored another goal in his future home of Toronto and Montreal draft pick Jacob De La Rose was named player of the game for Sweden after tallying three points.

Czech Republic 2 Switzerland 5
