Canada vs. Germany live score, updates, highlights from 2023 World Juniors

Canada’s second game at the 2023 World Juniors takes place today, as the host nation takes on Germany in Group A.

Canada didn’t get off to the expected start, suffering an upset loss to the Czech Republic on Monday. The gold medalists received poor goaltending and several turnovers in their own zone that led to defeat.

“They outplayed us,” forward Brennan Osman said. “You can’t take any team lightly. They played well, so we give them respect. It’s a learning curve. They say you win or you learn, and tonight was learning.”

The loss adds to Canada’s success on the way to first place in the group. However, the next step to get there is to shift the focus forward.

Osman said: “This is only the first day; This is not a gold medal game. “Obviously there’s a lot of hype about our team, but at the same time you want to win, especially with this amazing crowd. Now we’ve got to go back in two days. It doesn’t hurt to have a game like this. “Every team does that. It’s good for us and it’s a little bit humbling.”

The Germans are also looking for their first win in this tournament. Germany lost to Sweden 1-0 in a goalkeeping duel in their game on Tuesday.

Nikita Kuap was sensational on the tour of Germany, saving 43 of 44 shots. But on the other side was Sweden’s Carl Lindbom, who proved invincible for the second consecutive appearance at the World Junior Championships.

5:15 pm – Williams has promised changes to the forward lines and we have a new look at the top three lines in Canada. Most notably, Connor Bedard and Shane Wright split, with Adam Fantilly dropping to the third line.

4 pm – After Benjamin Gaudreau’s poor performance against the Czech Republic, Dennis Williams will face Germany alongside Tomas Milich. It may have been the plan before, but after Gaudreau opened up in the game, it was an easy decision for Williams. Compositional changes will also occur for Canada.
