The U.S. National Junior Team won 7-1 over Germany in its second and final pre-tournament game in preparation of the 2020 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championship. Cole Caufield led USA with four goals, including the eventual game-winner.

โ€œIt was a good game for us, again we saw some things that were good and some things we need to keep getting better at,โ€ said head coach Scott Sandelin. โ€œAny time you win a hockey game guys have a good feeling moving into the tournament, but itโ€™s going to get a lot harder.โ€

Eleven seconds into the game, Caufield found himself on a breakaway chance but was denied. Spencer Knight made two critical saves going the other way, including one off his stick that turned into a Trevor Janicke breakaway. However, Germany would hold strong through the majority of the opening period.

Caufield would eventually find the back of the net, while on a five-on-three power play, high over the stick of German goaltender Hendrik Hane with only 56 seconds remaining in the period. Alex Turcotte assisted on the opening goal.

With 1:04 remaining on the power play, the U.S. started the second period on the man advantage. Germany killed the penalty and went on the offensive, tying the game 1-1 on a two-on-one breakaway opportunity. USA spent much of the second period on the penalty kill, effectively thwarting Germanyโ€™s man advantage.

The score remained 1-1 until Caufield scored his second goal of the night, this time from a Ty Emberson rebounded shot 14:44 into the second period.

U.S. took over play in the third period when Nick Robertson split across the German defence and fired a shot from the high slot. Jack Drury tipped an Emberson shot to make the score 4-1, four minutes before an Oliver Wahlstrom one-timer found the back of the net.

Caufield scored his third of the game, a one-time shot from an Emberson pass at 13:53, putting the U.S. lead at five goals. Caufieldโ€™s fourth goal of the game came while on the man advantage, with just one minute remaining, to finalize the U.S. victory at 7-1. Knight played all 60 minutes for the U.S. holding Germany to one goal.
