Day Twelve: Detroit Red Wings At The 2014 World Championship

Four Detroit Red Wings saw action in day twelve of the 2014 World Championship in Minsk, Belarus.

Danny DeKeyser and Justin Abdelkader was on the ice for USA, Tomas Tatar was on the ice for Slovakia, and Jakub Kindl was on the ice Czech Republic. Gustav Nyquist and Sweden had the day off.

USA was up against Germany at 6:45 a.m., Slovakia played Denmark  at 9:45 a.m., and the Czech Republic battled France at 1:45 p.m.

USA vs Germany

Justin Abdelkader had 19:04 minutes of ice time, registered three shots on net, scored two goals for USA, and finished the game a plus three. Abdelkader scored the first goal of the game for USA and the last goal of the game, which became the game winner after Germany scored late in the third.

Danny DeKeyser had 22:21 minutes of ice time, sat for two minutes in the penalty box, and had an even rating. DeKeyser did not register a shot on net, but his ice time increased as the game went on for USA and that shows how much the coaching staff trusts him on the ice.

USA beat Germany 5-4.

Tomas Tatar had 17:52 minutes of ice time, placed four shots on net, scored two goals, and finished the game a plus two. Tatar followed in the foot of Abdelkader and scored the first and last goals of the game for Slovakia, plus his second goal became the game winner after Denmark scored second after.
