The Czech ice hockey team defeated Russia 3:2 Sunday evening, their fifth straight win in this year’s World Championships in Slovakia. The victory solidifies the reigning champions’ first place position in the qualification round and they are the only team to have not yet lost a point. The 15th to 17th minutes saw two goals for the Czechs by Jakub Voráček and Jaromír Jágr. Much of the second period was dominated by fierce attacks by Evgeny Artyukhin that left star forward Milan Michálek and Karel Rachůnek injured. The Czechs will now face Germany on Monday in the final match of the second round.
