Early Musings for the 2008 World Junior Hockey Tournament
Right now it's the first day of the World Juniors in Ottawa and so far the only games are Germany-US, which the US won handily, winning 8-2. The Americans scored first, on a beautiful one timer in front of Timo Pielmeier, the hapless German goalie who allowed the first 5 goals after the first two periods. The Germans struck back, with a tip in front of Thomas McCollum. From there on it was all America. At the start of the third Germany put their backup goalie, Phillip Grubauer, in net. He gave up three goals in relief but Germany showed signs of promise.
