The United States took another step closer to clinching first place in Group A at the World Junior Championship.

The Americans rode a four-goal second period to bury Germany in their preliminary round game on Sunday, winning the contest 8-0.

Vince Hinostroza scored two goals and added two assists to lead the American charge, with six separate players contributing goals for the U.S.

The defending gold medalists now enter their decisive game against Canada on Tuesday with a firm grip on first place in Group A. With nine points through three games, the Americans need only to push Canada (who sits with four points and a 1-0-1 record) to overtime to secure the point they would need to lock up top spot in the group.

Canada now needs to beat both the United States and Slovakia in regulation to earn top spot in the group.

Germany (0-3-0), meanwhile, must now beat the Czech Republic for any chance to avoid the relegation round.
