USA thumps Germany

Team USA made an early statement in the WJC tournament in Ottawa, blowing away Germany 8-2. The team’s top line of Colin Wilson, James Van Riemsdyk and Jordan Schroeder accounted for half the goals, Wilson scored the game’s first goal, completing a tic-tack-toe passing play with Kevin Shattenkirk getting the primary assist. Wilson later assisted on two scores by his linemates. Recaps are from USA Hockey and USA Today. Scoring summary. USA Hockey blog notes. Next up for Team USA is the Czech Republic on Sunday.

Looking back
Former Terrier goalie Rick DiPietro made his first start in two months for the Islanders, following a knee injury, and produced a strong effort in a 4-1 win that ended the Fishsticks’ 10-game losing streak. Freddy Meyer, DiPietro’s teammate--both at BU and on the U.S. NTDP-- scored New York’s final goal on a third-period slapshot. It was his fourth goal of the season.
