MONTREAL - The Americans were back on the ice for a second straight day on Friday.
United States 6 - Germany 3
Less than 24 hours after being downed by Canada, the United States was trying to rebound and earn their first victory of the tournament against Germany.
Defenseman Jordan Harris definitely understood the significance of the contest.
After watching his squad give up the first goal of the game a few minutes earlier, he scored a goal of his own after receiving a pass from teammate Trevor Zegras.
Seeing the space in front of him, Harris moved to the top of the slot and beat the German goaltender with a wrist shot.
While Harris demonstrated the full extent of his offensive prowess on the play, he still has some work to do in the celebration department…
Harris logged 15:21 of ice time against the Germans, registered two shots on goal, and posted a plus-2 differential.
For his part, forward Cole Caufield was held off the scoresheet again. He registered three shots on goal while logging 12:52 of ice time.
