Canada leads the pool that includes Germany, Sweden, the U.S. and Slovakia with six points. Carey Price of the Tri-City Americans has two wins for Team Canada, including a shutout over the host country on December 26th and 32 saves on Wednesday versus the U.S. Germany is second with five points and the Americans are in third with the one point they earned by going to overtime in their first game. The top three teams from each pool will advance to the championship round with the first place team earning a bye in the quarterfinals.
