The United States dropped to 0-2 at the IIHF World Championship following a 2-1 overtime loss against Denmark in preliminary round play at Lanxess Arena in Cologne, Germany.

Stefan Lassen scored 2:04 into overtime, beating goaltender Scott Clemmensen (27 saves).

Denmark took a 1-0 lead in the second period on a goal from Lars Eller. U.S. defenseman Keith Yandle scored on the power play to tie the score after 40 minutes.
