Canada advances to semis at worlds after 2-1 win over Germany

Canada's moving on at the World Hockey Championship after a 2-1 win over Germany in the quarterfinals.

The top team in Group B in the preliminary round, Canada had little trouble in the first 40 minutes, outshooting Germany 35-8 (and 20-1 in the second period). The Germans made it interesting in the third, though, after Yannic Seidenberg scored shorthanded to trim Canada's lead to only one.

Philipp Grubauer was exceptional in goal for the Germans. The Washington Capitals' backup did all he could for his team to pull off what would have been a remarkable upset. He finished with 48 saves on 50 shots.

Jeff Skinner and Mark Scheifele scored for Canada, which will face Russia in the semifinals. The Russians won their quarterfinal against the Czech Republic by a 3-0 score.

Sweden won its quarterfinal over Switzerland and will play Finland in the tournament's other semifinal, after the Finns knocked out the Americans earlier Thursday.
