Ice Hockey World Championship - 2022, video reviews of matches

Formidable Canada crumbled when serious pressure began to be exerted on it.

Another day of play has come to an end at the World Ice Hockey Championship. Saturday’s main match was the confrontation between Switzerland and Canada, as a result of which the Swiss continued their victorious march and once again proved their readiness to fight for medals of the highest dignity.

The Danes dealt dryly with the French, who occupy the place of the Russian team at the World Championships. The team of Heinz Ehlers is worthy, and she beats all those whom she should beat. Nobody expects any miracle from the Danes, but they keep their average level with dignity, fighting for the playoffs. The French in the end took a chance and replaced the goalkeeper with the sixth field hockey player, but it ended with Julian Jacobsen’s goal into an empty net. The more skilful and trained team deservedly got three points.

The Swedes are praised at the current World Cup, for good reason. The stars of this Scandinavian team, playing in the NHL, refuse to come to the tournament en masse, but Tre Krunur manage without them. True, in the match with the United States, the Swedes still suffered their first defeat in Finland, losing in extra time. For America, an excellent match was played by striker Adam Godette, who scored a double and gave one effective pass. Sweden attracted the attention of a talented defender Rasmus Dahlin. It looks like the top four teams in Group B are finally clear.

For the first time in history, Switzerland scored six goals for Canadians and single-handedly led group A. Could anyone have thought before that the Swiss would play on the same level as the founders of hockey? But year after year, this team progressed, took a step forward, eventually achieving results. In the reporting meeting, we again saw a team ready to fight for the gold medals of the championship. Niko Hishir scored, Kurashev and Malgin played effectively in the role of assistants (Denis broke into the leaders of the scorers race), whom we follow more closely. Nine abandoned goals for two is exactly what this World Cup needs.

Austria, which made a good noise in this tournament (and even defeated the Czechs), could not cope with the onslaught of the Finns, losing to the opponent dry. Finland, of course, didn’t exert themselves at all, and the efforts of Filppula, Granlund and Rajala were enough to score three points. The Suomi national team, by the way, is playing to zero in the second match in a row – Juho Olkinuora, who abandoned Metallurg Magnitogorsk during the KHL playoffs, had plenty of rest and looks good. Finns confidently lead group B.

The Slovakian national team with a modest score of 3:1 beat the outsiders represented by the Italians, thereby playing in favor of the Kazakhstan team. The Slovaks have many talented hockey players, including forward Juraj Słafkowski, but this team has not reached serious achievements for a long time. It’s time to show something serious. Italy continues to be a football, but obviously not a hockey power. A typical lift team, regularly moving between the elite and weaker divisions.

A lot has already been written about the Czechs at the current world championship. They managed to win their player from the squad, and lost to the Austrians, attracting a lot of attention to themselves. But this time there was no sensation: the team of Kari Jalonen, with the arrival of David Pastrnak, seriously got down to business. In the reporting meeting, the star Czech took part in three goals of his national team, implementing a bullet, scoring a field goal and passing to Roman Chervenka when he hit an already empty net.

Norway adequately resisted, but the class of teams and individual hockey players turned out to be much higher.
