Germany forward Leon Draisaitl assisted on the game-tying goal in his team's 4-3 shootout victory over Latvia on Tuesday to advance to the IIHF World Championship quarter-finals. 

Felix Schutz tied the game up on the power play with 33 seconds left in the match after Draisaitl backhanded the puck on net from just outside the crease.
