No comments

It was an action-packed afternoon at the IIHF World Championships in Slovakia, and the big-name Blackhawks representatives came to play. Check out all the highlights below.

United States defeats Great Britain, 6-3

On a first-period American power play, Patrick Kane recorded an assist on this shot as James van Riemsdyk slammed home the rebound:

With this assist, Patrick Kane became the all-time American points leader at the men’s IIHF World Championships:

Kane nearly had another assist here, but Larkin’s goal was disallowed as his stick was above the crossbar when he redirected the puck:

Alex DeBrincat got on the board with this shot from the slot:

Kane recorded another assist as he initiated the play by chipping it free below the goal line:

In the dying seconds of the middle frame, Kane had a bit of a slip-up as he knocked a puck right onto the stick of Brett Perlini (yes, Brendan’s brother) who capitalized:

Kane made up for his mistake early in the third period by scoring fifth American goal of the game:


Switzerland defeats Norway, 4-1

Neither Blackhawks representative recorded a point in this contest, but there was a scary moment in the second period when Andreas Martinsen delivered a check to Philipp Kurashev’s head:

Martinsen received a two-minute penalty for boarding and a ten-minute misconduct penalty as well. Thankfully, Kurashev wasn’t injured and he finished the game.


Germany defeats Slovakia, 3-2

The Germans were down 2-1 with just under two minutes to play in the third period. They pulled their goalie for the extra attacker and found the back of the net. Dominik Kahun recorded a secondary assist on the play:

With about half a minute to play in regulation, Kahun got the puck to Frederik Tiffels, who propelled Leon Draisaitl up the ice for the game-winning goal:


Russia defeats Italy, 10-0

Artem Anisimov went pointless in the Russian blowout, but his line did help generate the first two goals:

Anisimov also committed a tripping penalty in the second period, but Italy didn’t convert on their power play.
