Canada – Denmark 2: 3 – After the 6-3 defeat to Switzerland, the Canadians were eager to react against Denmark. This attempt failed. Strong Dance by Marcus Laritsen and Peter Regin took a 2-0 lead in the first three places. Mathias Bau increased again in the 52nd minute after a Canadian goal from Max Comtois. The North Americans could not do more than Ryan Graves’s 2: 3.

One point is definitely enough for the dance team to advance against the Slovaks on Tuesday.
