The second day of the Ice Hockey World Cup, the second match of the German ice hockey team. After beating Slovakia in the opener, there was nothing to gain against the USA this time.

In the opening match, Germany beat Slovakia 6-4, but there was nothing to gain against the United States in the second match. Instead they were beaten 1:6.

The Americans were clearly the better team from start to finish, and that was reflected in the final score. Tkachuk (13th) and Kesselring (18th) put their team on a winning track early. In the middle third, Gaudreau made it 3-0 (33') before Ehles scored the only German goal of the day (35'). Three seconds before the second intermission, Hughes made it 4-1 (40th). In the final third, Zagras (51) and Eismont (53) increased the score.

The host country remains pure. After a narrow 1-0 win after a penalty shootout against Finland, the Czechs also defeated Norway. Although the Scandinavian team led 3-1, the home team turned the match into a 6-3 victory thanks to goals from Cervenka (two goals), Beranek, Stransky, Hajek and Palat.
