The Canadians, Swedes and Czechs keep winning, and the British are happy even when they lose.

On May 18, the seventh day of play of the 2024 World Hockey Championship took place. Let’s summarize the results of the past six games.

The Swedes, who had not lost a single game in the tournament, scored two goals in the seventh minute and went into half-time with a comfortable lead. Latvia did not give up and even managed to recover. It took the team only 23 seconds! However, midway through the second half, something occurred to Elvis Merzlikin and he allowed three goals on three straight shots in 26 seconds. Sweden easily achieved a crushing victory and consolidated first place in Group B.

Goals from NHL players Nico Hischier and Roman Josi quickly confirmed the status quo . The rest was a matter of time. Switzerland scored three more goals in the second and third periods and led the match to a crushing victory. 8:0! At the end of the day, Patrick Fischer’s team took second place in Group A.

Germany, after defeating Latvia (8-1) and Kazakhstan (8-2), continued its victorious advance. Poland, however, also imposed fierce resistance in this match. In the middle of the third period, already losing 0-3, the Poles scored twice in 122 seconds and got closer to the rival. It seemed that this sensational team could also surprise this time, but John-Jason Peterka’s goal 52 seconds after Filip Komorski’s goal ended Poland’s aspirations. Meanwhile, Germany rose to second place in the group along with Sweden, the United States and Slovakia. Poland remains last.
