Two Chicago stars found the back of the net in a win, plus more updates from day six in Slovakia.

 

USA 6, Great Britain 3

Patrick Kane and Alex DeBrincat dominated for the United States in a big win for the Americans over Great Britain on Wednesday. After assisting on the opening goal of the game, Kane found his Chicago teammate as the USA pulled away from a pesky British side. 

With the Americans leading 3-1, Kane dug the puck out from behind the net and chipped it back into the slot, where Derek Ryan found DeBrincat for his fourth goal of Worlds. The Cat now leads all American skaters in scoring at the 2019 tournament.

 Kane would take matters into his own hands later in the game, providing the Americans with a response goal after Great Britain made it a 5-2 game in the third period. #88 collected a loose puck in front of the net and chipped it home to end any hope of a British comeback.

The goal makes "Captain America" the all-time leading scorer in USA Hockey history, passing Mark Johnson, as Kane finished the afternoon with three points (1 G, 2 A) in the win.

Sweden 4, Norway 1

In a battle of Rockford IceHogs teammaes, neither Philipp Kurashev or Andreas Martinsen found the back of the net in a 4-1 Swiss win. 

Germany 3, Slovakia 2

Dominik Kahun assisted on the game-winning goal, as Germany knocked off the hosts 3-2 on Wednesday afternoon. With less than a minute left against Slovakia, the Blackhawks winger kicked off an odd-man rush for the Germans, sliding the puck to Yannic Eidenberg who found Markus Eisenschmid for the game-winning goal. Kahun now has three assists during the tournament for Germany, who lead Group A with a perfect 4-0-0 record. 

Russia 10, Italy 0

Artem Anisimov did not record a point in Russia's 10-0 win over Italy on Wednesday.
