Team USA extended its win streak over Germany to six games after Friday's 6-3 victory, led by four primary assists from Trevor Zegras (Bedford, N.Y.). The U.S. improved its record to 1-0-0-1 (W-OTW-OTL-L) in 2020 IIHF World Junior Championship preliminary play.
“We knew it was going to be a tough game and that we’d face some adversity,” said head coach Scott Sandelin (Hibbing, Minn.). “We kept talking about it, every game in this tournament is hard. That was a good team we played tonight and I’m glad we battled the way we did.”
