DeBrincat opened scoring just 4:05 into the game on a power play. Kane fed James van Riemsdyk down low and he passed it across the face of the goaltender to an awaiting DeBrincat.

He scored a second one at 6:04 of the opening frame. The Blackhawks forward had four shots on goal.

Kane's lone goal came at 15:52 of the second period when he pounced on a rebound out in front. Kane had a team-high six shots on goal.

Artem Anisimov was held without a point in Russia's 5-0 shutout of Austria. He recorded two shots on goal.

GERMANY 2, DENMARK 1

Dominik Kahun recorded an assist and two shots in a 2-1 victory for the Germans over Denmark.

Germany jumped out to a 2-0 lead but Denmark made it interesting in the third. Kahun's squad was able to hold on for the close win.
