The U.S. and Germany played three times as part of last year’s world championship, including a pre-tournament game in Munich on May 9 (6-3 U.S. win), a preliminary round matchup in the world championship on May 15 (3-2 U.S. win) and in the tournament semifinals, which Germany won by a 4-3 count in overtime.

The teams will meet for the 23rd time ever in the men’s world championship this evening, with Team USA owning a 13-0-2-4-3 (W-OTW-OTL-L-T) advantage.

Team USA played last night and dropped a 5-2 decision to Sweden, which included two late empty-net goals by the Swedes. Zach Werenski and Brock Nelson scored for Team USA and Alex Lyon made 33 saves in goal. The U.S. won 70% of its faceoffs in the contest.

Germany also play yesterday and gained a 6-4 victory over Slovakia.

After tonight, the U.S. will have a day off before returning to action on Monday (May 13) to face Slovakia.
