Group A Preliminary Game

9:30 PM ET: Slovakia vs Germany

Slovakia gave the hosts Canada a scare on Sunday, and it will be interesting to see how much they have left in the tank in what is a very important game against Germany. After Samuel Hlavaj started against Canada, it may be Simon Latkoczy in net for the Slovaks. Germany is coming off of two very tough losses, but they will get reinforcements for this game after players end their quarantine. If they don’t win this game, they will have to defeat Switzerland to make the quarter finals. The game will be on TSN 3/5 and RDS2 in Canada and NHL Network in the US.
