Five U.S. skaters record multi-point games

PIESTANY, Slovakia — Despite outshooting Germany 37-18, the United States Under-17 Men’s Select Team fell in overtime here today in its third game at the Under-17 Five Nations Tournament.

After falling behind 3-1, the U.S. stormed back with four consecutive goals from Dane Montgomery (Grand Forks, N.D.), Blake Biondi (Hermantown, Minn.), Daniyal Dzhaniyev (Brooklyn, N.Y.) and Jack Williams (Biddeford, Maine) to take a 5-3 lead. After a goal from Germany's Justin Volk cut the U.S. lead to one, Biondi converted on a chance 3:42 later for his second goal of the game, restoring the lead to two.

Germany answered with two late goals to send the game to overtime and finished the game with a breakaway goal from Lukas Reichel in overtime.

"It stings right now," said U.S. head coach Mark Dennehy (Andover, Mass.). "The good news for us is we have another game tomorrow and a chance to compete. As I told the guys, we leave here and we get ready for Slovakia tomorrow."

NOTES: Team USA scored one shorthanded goal and one power-play goal... Gavin Fitzpatrick (Norwood, Mass.) made 11 saves... The U.S. returns to action Sunday against Slovakia at 8:30 a.m. ET.
