The Finns barely beat the team from the bottom half of the table, but the Swedes avoided those problems.

May 20 in the Finnish Tampere and the Latvian capital Riga was the next day of the hockey world championship. Briefly summarize the six games played.

Two periods were not enough for the US and Denmark to open an account in heads-up play. The Scandinavians grabbed at every opportunity and stayed lean on all lines for 50 minutes. In addition, in the third period they obtained a double majority, but they did not face the riots, and soon they were in the minority. The Americans added at just the right time and had a brilliant finish, scoring two more goals into the opponent’s net. The Stars and Stripes continue to lead Group A and have yet to drop a single point.

The Czech Republic, as in the recent match with the Slovenes, joined for only a short period. But this was again enough to win. In the second half of the initial period, the Czech team scored two goals, and all the time after it was academically, in its traditional style, protecting it. The result is a victory and many forces saved.

The Finnish team is having a very bad time at the World Cup at home. Jukka Jalonen’s star team lost two opening matches in the tournament, then picked up the missing points, but now almost stumbled upon the Austrians.

The first period turned out to be the most eventful: in just seven minutes, the Finns managed to take the lead, lose the lead and take the lead again. We had to wait more than 50 minutes for the next goal, all this time the handicap of the hosts remained minimal. Point in the game was put by Ahti Oksanen, but against his teammates he had to sweat very seriously to stay in the lead.

The Canadian team set a particularly high bar for toughness in the match with Switzerland. The judges ignored many controversial points and kept the compositions the same. The nerve of the game was sharp, there were enough chances, but they managed to score only in the middle of the match – the Canadians were the first to do it.

The Crusaders found themselves quickly and managed to take the lead even before the break, and midway through the third period they increased their lead to two goals. Maple Leaves managed to recover only one of them and lost for the first time in this tournament. At the same time, Switzerland is in the championship with 100% points.

Sweden did not notice the resistance of France. “Tre Krunur” with unsurpassed confidence “trampled” an inexperienced opponent in the first period. In 20 minutes, the Scandinavians had seven shots on goal, and four of them were accurate. Twice the Swedes realized the majority, the second time only six seconds before the end of regulation time.

The French castled the goalkeepers and stabilized the game, preventing it from sinking into an all-out pogrom. However, the Swedes, it seemed, were not too eager to finish off the rival. Another win allows Sweden to chase down Team USA in a bid to win first place in the pool. Probably, its owner will decide in a one-on-one between these teams.

Kazakhstan missed a historic opportunity for the first time in history to reach the World Cup playoffs. Galym Mambetaliev’s team “burned to the ground” in the match with Latvia. For the moment, the Kazakhs managed to stay afloat, but at one point the class difference came to the fore. As a result, at the end of the first half and at the beginning of the second half, the Balts scored a total of three goals and, in principle, could play in the minimum configuration. But no: the hosts of the tournament played to the end, so much so that the fifth puck was thrown into the opponent’s goal six seconds before the end of the second twenty-minute period. In the third period, the Latvians finally raged and scored two more times, inflicting an even defeat on Kazakhstan.
