U.S. opens 2-0 lead on Germans in first
Charlie Coyle scored a power-play goal and Jerry D'Amigo notched his first of the tournament when the U.S. National Junior Team opened a 2-0 first-period lead over Germany in preliminary-round action in Group A of the World Junior Championship at HSBC Arena.

Coyle took a pass from Jon Merrill along the left-wing half boards and skated toward the left post before lofting a shot that beat German goalie Niklas Treutle under his arm at the 12:37 mark. D'Amigo's unassisted tally came 48 seconds later at 13:25.

U.S. goalie Jack Campbell needed to make just two saves while Treutle was kept busy with 21 stops. U.S. forward Jeremy Morin, who missed the previous game due to injury, had a team-leading four shots on net.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
