Italy and Great Britain are left behind in the Ice Hockey World Championship

Italy and Great Britain are left behind in the Ice Hockey World Championship

The Italians lost the last and decisive group game against Kazakhstan in Helsinki 2:5 (1:2, 1:1, 0:2) and are therefore last in Group A in the German preliminary round. In Group B Austria won brilliantly in the evening. 5: 3 (0-1, 0-1, 5-1) against England, leading 3-1 in 13 minutes. This leaves Britain firmly in last place in the group.

Canada, the reigning world champions, surprisingly lost the second game against Denmark 2: 3 (0: 2, 1: 0, 1: 1) in the evening. Earlier, the Canadians lost to Switzerland 6-3. Nevertheless, the title contender has already qualified for the quarter-finals, which the Danes can now look forward too.

Canada’s surprise loss is enough for Germany to avoid formidable quarter-final opponents as group runners-up in their last preliminary round match against Switzerland on Tuesday (11.20 am / Sport1 and MagentaSport) and continue in Helsinki.

In Tampere, the Czech Republic beat the USA 1-0 (1-0, 0-0, 0-0) to advance to the quarterfinals. The U.S. needs one more point in Tuesday’s quarterfinal against Norway. Group B hosts Finland and Sweden have already qualified for the quarter-finals.
