Ice Hockey World Cup: Canada Fights Strong Kazakhs - Winter Games - Ice Hockey

After a historically poor start, the Canadian national ice hockey team battled for a second consecutive victory in the World Cup in Riga and retained their quarter-final chance. The Canadians defeated the surprisingly strong climber Kazakhstan on Friday 4: 2 (1: 0.1: 1.2: 1).

The Canadian team, equipped with several young NHL players, took a 2–0 lead, but had to concede the equalizer early in the final third (42nd). 19-year-old striker Cole Perfetti of the second-grade AHL (48th) scored the winning goal. Connor Brown of the NHL Team Ottawa Senators hit an empty goal three seconds before the end. With three defeats, Canada started the World Cup as usual and are still in sixth place before the remaining two matches.

In the evening game of Group B, Norway beat host Latvia 4: 3 after a shootout.

In Group A, Sweden trailed Great Britain 4: 1 (1: 1.2: 0.1: 0) to secure their second win.

Sweden trailed against Great Britain, but earned three well-deserved points. Nevertheless, the “three-crown team” is not currently in the promotion rank as goalkeeper Sebastian Dahm of Denmark and KAC beat Belarus 5–2 and move up to fourth place. The Dane went down to the final third, 2–1, but scored four goals between the 45th and 53rd minutes. The game was led by Austrian Christoph Sternat (head referee) and Elias Sewald (linesman).
