The Czech Republic made light work of Denmark in their first game at the ice hockey world championships in Switzerland on Saturday night, winning 5:0. While Jaromír Jágr scored a goal and added two assists, the star forward was beaten to the man of the match award by 22-year-old goaltender Jakub Štěpánek, who justified his selection by keeping a clean sheet in his first match at a world championships. He and his team-mates next line out on Monday afternoon, when they take on Norway. The Czech Republic have won the tournament on five occasions, the last coming in 2005.
