Germany Falls To Russia At Worlds

Russia 2, Germany 0
Semyon Varlamov stopped 30 shots for the shutout and Evgeni Malkin assisted on Nikolay Zherdev's game-winner, tying him for the tournament scoring lead as Russia remained undefeated at the World Championship with a 2-0 victory against Germany.

After enjoying comfortable wins against Latvia and Norway to open the tournament, the Russians were in tough against upstart Germany, which fired 13 shots at Varlamov in the opening period. Despite the barrage of shots in the first, the game remained scoreless until Zherdev tipped in Evgeni Medvedev's shot to score his first of the tournament with just nine seconds remaining in the period. The Russians enjoyed a 10-8 shot advantage in the second before Alexei Tereshenko doubled the lead in the third with Germany's Justin Krueger in the penalty box for slashing.

With his assist on Zherdev's goal, Malkin now has six points in three games, tying him with Sweden's Loui Eriksson for the tournament lead. The win also gave Russia a 3-0 record, tying it for first in its group along with Sweden. The two teams also have identical plus-seven goal differentials. The Russians next face Denmark Thursday before meeting the tournament host Swedes Friday.

Panthers forward Marcel Goc was named Germany's best player of the game against Russia. His squad's captain finished with one shot on 19:12 of time on ice.
