The whole of Canada is talking about ice hockey. In North America, the playoffs of the National Hockey League (NHL), the world’s best league, are underway. As the country has the background of national sports in the World Championships. The fact that Germany beat the Maple leaves 3–1 (2–1, 0–0, 1–0) at the World Cup in Riga on Whit Monday, was a side note in the Canadian media. Although this defeat was historic, it has more importance in this country. And on Wednesday, Kazakhstan and former Nuremberg speeds up a feud with Jesse Blacker (3:15 PM /Game 1)
First World Cup win against Canada since 1996
For the first time since 1949 (5: 1 in Vienna), the selection of the German Ice Hockey Federation (DEB) won the World Cup again against the homeland of ice hockey. That the Canadians came up with an extremely average team to their standards due to the NHL playoffs, which have not stopped due to the World Cup. Followers of the travel rules will be barred due to the epidemic. Swam over it. Even at the 2018 Olympic Games, there was hardly a world star and no NHL player at all. Also in 2018, the Germans defeated Canada en route to an incredible silver victory. Is this why the cost of this medal is low today? Bus.
Appreciation: National coach Tony Soderholm enhanced his team’s readiness.

So the third game in the current tournament in the third game, the joy of defeating the Canadians, was justified. Germany has never been a favorite in big tournaments. But there is something in it for national coach Tony Soderholm’s team in 2021 as well. Finn has a balanced team with courage and strong support so far is Mathias Niederberger, Berlin’s master keeper. The only catch from Nuremberg’s point of view is that goalkeeper Niklas Truttle has only been in the stands until now.
Even sometimes strong Canadians could not harm the Germans. Above all, extraordinary talent Moritz Cedar demonstrated that the DEB team does not take anything away from anyone. The 20-year-old gave strict scrutiny and clear words. His NHL team, the Detroit Red Wings, which did not qualify for the playoffs, should have enjoyed watching Cedar develop further. The former Mannheim player spent the 2020/2021 game of the year in Sweden’s first division on loan from Swedish runner-up Rogal BK, and was voted the best defender. You can see why in the World Cup.

Goalkeeper Neidberger praised his team, saying, “We really have the heart of a lion, you can see it.” Again and again the Germans threw themselves into shots of the Canadians. Together they harassed North Americans. Soderholm cheered his team, saying, “I’ve probably never seen a game where a team has intercepted so many shots. Everything worked out perfectly.” Unlike the Canadians, his team did not even show their best in the tournament. Soderholm said, “I don’t think you will be able to become a world champion in this tournament if you take so many penalties. But we learn.”
Quiet hope for dress
The Edmonton Oilers first round in the NHL playoffs made much headlines compared to the national team’s defeat against Germany. What does this have to do with the World Cup? Theoretically, the Germans could now receive reinforcements. Leon Dressital, one of the best in the world, and Dominic Kahun now have time.
