  • In Swiss Group A, the Czech host team celebrated a tough duel against Finland at the World Ice Hockey Championships in Prague with a 1-0 draw.
  • In Group B in Ostrava, Germany opened the World Cup finals against Slovakia with impressive success. The Swedes declared their title ambitions with a 5-2 win over the USA.

Group A

  • Czech Republic – Finland 1:0 N.B

That was very difficult. The Czech Republic fought their way to a narrow victory over the disciplined Finns in the World Cup on home soil. After 60 tough minutes and an amazing 5-minute scoreless extra time, the decision was made on penalty kicks. There, Bale's goalkeeper Harry Sateri was twice beaten in the Finnish goal, while his counterpart managed to stop all the Finns' attempts. The final point came with a high corner shot from Czech Roman Cervenka, a 38-year-old veteran of the Rapperswil-Jona Lakers.

Group B

  • Sweden – USA 5:2
  • Germany – Slovakia 6:4

Sweden won the duel between the favorites in Ostrava. Joel Eriksson Ek gave Sweden the lead in the first third (9th minute). Lucas Raymond raised the score to 2-0 (24th place). The Americans, who had been disappointing until then, managed to close the gap to 1:2 through Zach Werenski (33rd). But Marcus Johansson restored the two-goal lead four minutes later. After a 2:3 second half by Brock Nilsson (44'), Victor Hedman (60) and Eriksson Ek (60') made the final score 5:2 with his second goal each through Empty Netter.

The German vice world champion has made a perfect start at the World Cup in the Czech Republic. Also thanks to an effective performance, the team of former coach Lugano and ZSC Harold Kreis beat Slovakia 6:4 in Ostrava. The shooting percentage was 39:22 in favor of the Eastern Europeans. SCB soldier Dominic Kahun opened the score after just half an hour. In a wild middle third, Germany doubled, then had to settle for a 2-2 equaliser, but scored half a minute before the second siren sounded to make it 3-2. Zug's Mark Michaelis was also among the scorers. The Slovaks also responded to their 4-2 lead with a goal. Leonard Pfoederle (57) then put the lid on him.
