USA Hockey's official release:

U.S. Men's Select Team Falls to Germany, 4-2, in Exhibition Game
Canzanello and Helminen Score in Tune-up for 2007 Deutschland Cup

COLOGNE, Germany – Former Colorado College defenseman Andrew Canzanello (Rochester, Minn.) and Dwight Helminen (Hancock, Mich.) each tallied a goal as the U.S. Men’s Select Team fell to Germany, 4-2, here tonight in its lone exhibition game before the 2007 Deutschland Cup.
“It was a good effort all around,” said Ben Smith, head coach of Team USA. “We got a chance to get everyone involved and I thought we got better as the game went on. We’re looking forward to starting the tournament tomorrow.”
Germany struck early in the opening stanza as Alexander Barta followed his own rebound and flipped it over the outstretched glove of netminder John Curry (Shorewood, Minn.) at 3:26. Felix Schutz scored just 1:27 later and Germany held its 2-0 advantage after 20 minutes.
Team USA scored the lone goal of the second period when Canzanello broke away from defenders and fired a wrist shot over the glove of goaltender Youri Ziffzer at 15:29.
