Tournament totals: 2 GP, 2-0-0, 1 SO, 0.50 GAA, .985 sv%
Andrei Vasilevskiy needed a masterful 27 save performance to help Russia stave off a spirited effort by Germany 3-0. It took 3 third period markers, including an empty netter by Viktor Tikhonov, for Russia to put the Germans away. The victory clinches the top spot in Group B for the Russians, but it may have come at a very high price. Team captain Alexander Ovechkin left the ice after 15:48 of ice time with what some observers deemed to likely be a catastrophic knee injury.
