U.S. finishes off Germany 8-0

It was a balanced scoring effort as eight different players had goals as the United States defeated Germany 8-0 on Thursday in its opening game at the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Linemates Alex Galchenyuk and Riley Barber had a goal and two assists each and their center, Sean Kuraly, had a goal and an assist. The U.S. also got three goals from defensemen in the win.

Goaltender John Gibson made 19 saves in two periods of play, with Jon Gillies finishing the shutout.

The U.S. scored in the first 20 seconds of each of the first two periods, and led 6-0 after 40 minutes.

Check back to NHL.com later today for a full recap of this game and the three others from the opening day of the WJC.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
