SASKATOON, Saskatchewan (AP) - Jordan Eberle, Nazem Kadri and Brandon Kozun scored in a shootout, and Jake Allen made the one stop he needed to give Canada a 5-4 victory over the United States on Thursday night in the world junior hockey championship.
After the first five shooters scored, Allen stopped Jordan Schroeder's attempt, then was mobbed by his teammates after the comeback victory.
Five-time defending champion Canada and the United States each won their first three games to set up the round-robin finale for the top spot in Group A.
Canada will play the Russia-Switzerland quarterfinal winner in the semifinals Sunday. The United States will face Finland in the quarterfinals Saturday, with the winner advancing to face Group B winner Sweden on Sunday night.
