HERNING, Denmark (AP) -- The United States dominated host Denmark 4-0 for a second straight victory at the world ice hockey championship on Saturday.
After an opening win over favorite Canada in a penalty shootout, the U.S. had an easier time against Denmark.
After saving 40 shots against Canada, goalie Keith Kinkaid was outstanding again, finishing with a 20-shot shutout.
"I felt pretty sharp today," Kinkaid said. "Maybe even sharper than yesterday."
Will Butcher and Chris Kreider each had a goal and an assist.
Butcher wristed the first goal over the shoulder of goalie Frederik Andersen in the first period.
Kreider deflected a slap shot by Quinn Hughes on a power play to double the lead in the second, and Cam Atkinson made it 3-0 on a rebound.
The U.S. killed Denmark's two-man advantage in that period.
"It was a good job by us to finish out," Kreider said.
Nick Jensen finished the scoring in the final period.
