Germany Upsets USA In First Game
MORE INFO
By Glenn Odebralski for floridapanthers.com

Wow.

If this is how the World Championships will be the entire tournament, then we're in for a lot of more surprises in Germany.

Playing in front of a record 76,000 people, Germany fed off of their supporters and stunned the United States 2-1 in overtime in the first game of the World Championships.

Germany stood strong to the mighty US in the first period and the teams went to the second scoreless.

Then 5:20 into the second Michael Wolf gathered a rebound from the slot at fired it top shelf, beating Panthers netminder Scott Clemmensen for the game's first goal.

And that was it for forty minutes. Germany holding on to a 1-0 lead.

The US finally got on the board 8:28 into the third when Anaheim's Ryan Carter fired a shot past Dennis Endras, tying the score at one.

Unfortunately that's all the Americans would get past the German netminder, despite firing 32 shots on net.

The first 60 minutes went by the waste side deadlocked at one. But it wouldn't take long for the Germans to win it in the extra session. Crashing to the front of the net, Felix Schultz barreled into Clemmensen, but not before tipping home a point shot for the game-winner just 21 seconds into overtime.

Clemmensen finished the game, stopping 20 of 21 shots.
