Two games were played in the IIHF World Junior Championships yesterday and here are the results:
Slovakia 5-2 Germany
Switzerland 3-4 Denmark (after shootouts)
Analysis of the fifth day
This is interesting for the development in both groups. In group A Finland and Germany will play for the last playoff spot where Sweden awaits after winning group B. In group B both Denmark and Switzerland have 4 points in 3rd and 4th place while Czech Republic is lagging behind, having only 1 point. The race for the last playoff spots are still open.
Canada vs United States
Germany vs Finland
Switzerland vs Sweden
Russia vs Czech Republic
We’re looking forward to the rival meeting between the both north-atlantic teams, it will be a blast! Finland should beat Germany for the last playoff spot, if they can manage their nerves. Switzerland has everything to win against Sweden who is already the winner of group B. Russia wants to stay in second place in the group, to avoid USA or Canada in the quarterfinal. Czech Republic have to fight for their existence in the tournament. Many tight and uncertain games.
