Kyle Turris, eager to get into action even though his equipment didn't arrive by game time, made his 2018 Canada debut in borrowed gear and was inserted onto the second power-play unit.

Pierre-Luc Dubois returned to the lineup after missing Monday's game with a lower-body injury, while Josh Bailey was scratched with a lower-body injury of his own. On defence, Ryan Pulock drew back into the lineup, while Thomas Chabot did not dress.

The Germans knocked Canada out of gold-medal contention in the semifinal of the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang in February, but only 10 players from that roster returned to suit up at the world championship.

Despite the addition of NHL players Leon Draisaitl (Edmonton Oilers) and Dennis Seidenberg (New York Islanders), the Germans were unable to build off their Olympic success in Denmark. Marco Sturm's group will not advance to the quarterfinal after finishing sixth in Group B with just one regulation win and one overtime win in seven games.

Tuesday's win guarantees Canada a third-place finish in Group B. The Canadians will now travel to Copenhagen and cross over to play the second-place team from Group A in Thursday's quarterfinal, wither Sweden or Russia. A quarterfinal win will give Canada the opportunity to play for a medal for the fourth straight year after winning gold in 2015 and 2016 and silver in 2017.

In early action on Tuesday, Finland clinched first place in Group B with a 6-2 win over the United States and Switzerland locked down fourth place in Group A with a 5-1 win over France. Slovakia beat Belarus 7-4 in a match between teams already eliminated from medal-round contention.

Thursday's quarterfinals in Herning will see Finland meet Switzerland while the United States plays the Czech Republic.
