Group B

Norway 0-2 Czech Republic – Czech Republic secured quarter-final spot with 4th win in 5th game. 2 goals in the first three were enough to win against twelve-time world champions Norway. Former Czech Republic player Dominik Kubalik doubled the lead in the 13th minute. Jakub Fleck got the final score after receiving a wonderful pass from Middle Campney. Norway met the favorites at eye level from the start and recorded the most shots on target (27:21). The Czech win also sent Switzerland and defending champions Canada into the quarter-finals.

Group A

USA 3-0 Denmark – 5 games, 5 wins, 15 points: USA maintains its winning streak in Tampere. But the victory against the Danes was to be endured: Cutter Gauthier could only open the scoring on the power play in the 50th minute. Alex Tuch (56th) and Rocco Di Grimaldi (60th / empty net) closed it out. With the US not dropping a point in Game 5, they can’t claim a quarter-final ticket from last year’s World Cup fourth place finish.

Austria 1-3 Finland Finland also qualified for the quarterfinals. He didn’t miss a beat against the current title defender and Olympic champion Austria in a 3:1 win. A minute later, Kasperi Kapanen gave the favorites the lead. Ambre-Piota’s Dominik Sverger equalized minutes later to level the score at 1-1, but Antti Sumela regained the lead in the 8th minute. About 2 minutes before the end of the game, Ahti Oksanen scored to make it 3-1.
