USA 3, GERMANY 0

HELSINKI – Beating Germany 3-0 on Sunday, the United States booked its ticket for the 2013 quarter-finals. The Americans scored two first-period goals and never looked back as 19-year-old goalie John Gibson earned his first World Championship shutout.

Sitting first overall in the Helsinki group, the Americans control their own destiny and can clinch top spot with a win over Slovakia on Tuesday.

The Germans, with seven points, have one game left against France on Tuesday. Slovak losses to Russia and the United States would help the German cause.

Bobby Butler, Paul Stastny, and Stephen Gionta scored for the United States. Final shots on gold favoured Germany 30-29.

Ranked second in the tournament in power play percentage (35%) before this game, the Americans worked the puck around effectively on their first man advantage. At 2:39, Bobby Butler, stationed in front, banged in the loose puck after Justin Faulk's center point blast went off his skate.

It didn’t take long for the U.S. to go up 2-0. Defenceman Erik Johnson executed a nice rush to the net, and then fed the puck out front to Stastny, who forced Endras to make a lunging save and then put the rebound in high at 4:53. It was Stastny's fourth goal of the tournament.

With 8:33 left in the third period, the Americans made it 3-0. Matt Hunwick let one fly from the left point, and Nate Thompson put the rebound through an outstretched Endras to Gionta, who flung it into the gaping net.

U.S. assistant captain Nate Thompson took a late elbowing penalty, but the Germans couldn't take advantage of their chance to break Gibson's goose egg. The goalie twice stymied Marcel Goc from close range to make sure of that.

CANADA 2, CZECH REPUBLIC 1

STOCKHOLM – Jeff Skinner broke a 1-1 tie with a lovely goal early in the third period that stood up as the winner to give Canada a 2-1 win over the Czech Republic.

Incredibly, Skinner played the least of any player in the game (8:48) with the exception of Luke Schenn, who received a match penalty in the second period, and young defenceman T.J. Brodie.

It was the first game between the countries in World Championship play since 2010 and puts Canada back on top of the Stockholm group with 16 points, two more than Switzerland.

The Czechs still have eight points, sit in fifth place, and are dangerously close to missing the quarter-finals.

Canada (5-0-1-0) finishes its round robin tomorrow against Slovenia while the Czechs (2-1-0-3) have a day off before facing Norway in a must-win game on Tuesday.

Canada opened the scoring with a power-play goal from Wayne Simmonds. He parked himself in front of Pavelec and deftly deflected a shot from Eric Staal. It was his first goal and point of his senior World Championship career with Team Canada, having played previously only on the 2008 gold medallists at the U20.

Canada seemed to be motoring along nicely in the early going, but a penalty to Steven Stamkos stalled the drive. Just as he came out of the box Martin Hanzal took a point shot that goalie Mike Smith saved, but he kicked the rebound right to Petr Koukal, who eluded Brodie to snap the puck in at 17:03.

The Czechs dominated the end of the period and nearly went ahead, but Smith made a great reaction save with his glove on a Tomas Hertl shot on a clear breakaway. The Czechs, who have struggled all tournament, skated off the ice having played perhaps their best period.

Despite the offensive skill on both sides, the second period was a scoreless one with plenty of opportunity on the power play. Schenn, playing so well on Canada’s blue line, took a major and match penalty for a hit along the boards, but Canada killed it off in part thanks to a Czech minor during the extended man advantage. Later on, the Czechs took four penalties of their own, but Canada couldn’t connect.

Skinner put Canada ahead at 6:55 of the final period on an end-to-end rush. He cut to the outside, down the left wing, and as he wheeled around the net, Pavelec stood up, thinking Skinner was going to pass.

Nope. Skinner put the puck on goal on the wraparound for a 2-1 Canada lead. Goalie Smith drew the only assist on the play.

Smith later preserved the lead with his best save of the game, a glove grab off a hard and accurate shot from the top of the circle by Jakub Nakladal. The Czechs didn't help their cause by taking two late penalties, hindering their chances of tying the game.
