They lost 1:5. In particular, the fourth goal of the USA confused the head of goalkeeper Nikita Quappa, who lost sight of the puck and looked back incomprehensibly at the celebrating opponent. It was the second accurate shot he missed in 36 seconds. However, the German goalkeeper made up for it slightly when he assisted his team’s only goal. Center Joshua Samanski took care of that, who skated across the entire rink against everyone and ended his solo action in the American goal.
