Marvin Cupper makes 40 saves, Germany upsets Czechs 3-0 at world juniors

MALMO, Sweden - Marvin Cupper made 40 saves and Frederik Tiffels had two goals and an assist as Germany shocked the Czech Republic 3-0 Monday at the world junior hockey championship.

The win puts the final playoff berth in Group A in question. If the Czechs beat Slovakia on Tuesday, they will go through. If they lose, Germany will get the last quarter-final berth.

Dominik Kahun added a goal and an assist for Germany (1-3-0, three points).

Marek Langhamer made 31 saves for the Czechs (1-2-0, two points).

While both teams have one win, Germany has more points because they won their game in regulation, while the Czech Republic beat Canada 5-4 in a shootout.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
