The 10 best single-game performances from the 2024 World Juniors preliminary round

The 2024 World Juniors has been filled with drama. 

Finland, who lost to Germany for the first time, snapped Sweden's three-game shutout streak and won. Germany got trounced by Latvia, but turned around and matched Canada for over 40 minutes. Norway gave the high-powered Team USA a scare.
