The United States is in danger of missing the medal round of the IIHF Men’s World Championship following a 3-2 loss to Germany on Sunday in St. Petersburg, Russia.
Former Toronto Maple Leafs prospect Korbinian Holzer, who is now in the Anaheim Ducks organization, scored the game-winner with 33 seconds remaining in regulation. The Germans never trailed in the preliminary-round contest, scoring 2:19 into the game and then again at 13:06 of the first period to take a 2-1 lead into the second.
Jake McCabe of the Buffalo Sabres got the Americans’ first goal and Auston Matthews, the potential No. 1 overall pick in this summer’s NHL draft, tied the game at 2-2 just 26 seconds into the second period. The U.S. outshot Germany 33-14.
With a 3-3 record, Team USA will need a win at 4:14 p.m. on Tuesday against Slovakia in the final day of preliminary play to secure a spot in the quarterfinals. The U.S. sits fourth with nine points in the Group B standings while Slovakia is fifth with six points.
