Sophomore Nick Bjugstad scored the game-winning goal for the United States against Denmark in its first game of the 2012 IIHF World Junior Championship. Gopher teammate freshmen Kyle Rau scored twice for Team USA, which rolled to an 11-3 win.

The United States was up 3-2 early in the second period when Bjugstad scored the eventual game-winning goal. Bjugstad now has three career World junior Championship goals and all three are game-winners, which includes the goal that secured the bronze medal for the United States in last year's tournament.

Rau, who is competing in his first World junior Championship, scored the sixth and ninth goals for the United States.

Team USA plays its second game of the tournament on Wednesday against Finland.
