Another Win For Team USA At The World Championship

HERNING, Denmark - Keith Kinkaid (Farmingville, N.Y.) made 20 saves and three U.S. players recorded a goal and an assist as the 2018 U.S. Men's National Team earned a 4-0 victory over Denmark here tonight in its second preliminary round game of the 2018 International Ice Hockey Federation Men's World Championship.

“I thought the crowd was tremendous and rewarded by a hard-fought game by both teams,” said Jeff Blashill, head coach of the 2018 U.S. Men’s National Team. “As a team, we’ve really enjoyed our time here so far and credit to the Danish Federation and the city of Herning for all their hard work. We’ll enjoy a day off tomorrow as we turn our attention to Monday’s game against Germany.”

The U.S. (1-1-0-0/W-OTW-OTL-L) will return to action Monday (May 7) against Germany at 4:15 p.m. local time/10:15 a.m. ET. That game, along with all U.S. Men's World Championship games, will be broadcast live on NHL Network.
