Team USA won its final game at the IIHF World Championships Tuesday, 3-2 in overtime against Italy. It wasn’t the finish that was expected for the reigning Olympic silver medalist country, but the victory allows the U.S. to compete in next year’s tournament.
Ducks forward Ryan Carter was held scoreless in just under 10 minutes of ice time, and finished the sixth-game tournament with a goal and an assist.
Meanwhile, Team Canada and Corey Perry finished round-robin play with a second straight loss, 3-2 to the Czech Republic. The loss means Canada will either face Russia or Finland in its quarterfinal game Thursday. Ray Whitney and Matt Duchene scored for Canada, while Perry was held scoreless.
Update, 2:15 p.m.: Russia has handed Finland its first loss of the tournament, a 5-0 shutout, and will play Canada in the quarterfinals.
