Ice Hockey World Cup: Canada’s Next Defeat

Ice Hockey World Cup: Canada's Next Defeat

Ice hockey world cup

The 26-time world champion Canada is under a lot of pressure at the Ice Hockey World Championships in Riga ahead of the third match against Germany on Monday evening. On Sunday, the Canadian team lost 5-1 to arch-rivals USA in their second group game. On Friday, they surprisingly lost 2–0 to hosts Latvia.

Other large nations have also struggled in the title fights that have occurred in the bubble so far due to the coronovirus epidemic.

Defending champions Finland in Group B also suffered a 2–1 defeat in the penalty shootout against Kazakhstan on Sunday. The Kazakhs, who returned to the World Cup for the first time since 2016, unexpectedly won 3–2 against Latvian on Saturday following a penalty shoot-out. Norway beat Italy 4–1.

Sweden is still without points

Similar to Canadians competing without NHL stars, it is in Group A Sweden, with the team having several World Cup debutants. The inexperienced “Trey Kroner” team lost 0–1 to the newly promoted Belarus on Sunday and failed in their second game. The eleven-time champion previously lost to Denmark 3: 4 and still has no points like Canada.

Switzerland, on the other hand, remains successful: a day after 5: 2 against the Czech Republic, the Confederates defeated the Danes 1: 0 and also have a maximum of six points in the account, such as Russia and Slovakia, who beat Great Britain 2. : 1.
