Carter, USA Fall to Denmark in OT

by Staff Writer / Anaheim Ducks
Ducks forward Ryan Carter and Team USA suffered an overtime loss for the second straight game at the IIHF World Championships on Monday in Germany.

This time the stinging defeat came at the hands of Denmark, who handed the Americans the same 2-1 loss host Germany did in Friday's opening game of the tournament. With two points through two games, USA plays a critical game against Finland on Wednesday to decide which team advances and which heads to the relegation round.

Scoreless after one period in Cologne, Denmark got on the board first with a power play goal from forward Lars Eller 8:52 into the second. The United States quickly answered back, also with the man-advantage, when Phoenix' defenseman Keith Yandle found the back of the net at the 12:03 mark.

With the game still knotted at one goal apiece after 60 minutes, the game headed to overtime. In the extra sesson, defenseman Stefan Lassen batted in the rebound off his own shot to beat USA goaltender Scott Clemmensen at the 2:04 mark and give Denmark the win.

In the loss, Carter logged 9:40 of ice time and four PIM. The 26-year-old mostly played on a forward line with Toronto's Christian Hanson and Rangers prospect Chris Kreider.
