Defeat for Czech ice hockey squad

13-11-2004

The Czech ice hockey team suffered defeat in their second Karjala Cup game in Helsinki on Saturday. They were defeated 2:3 after their game against Sweden went to a penalty shoot-out. This now puts them in second place behind the Swedes, and in order to win the competition they will have to beat the Russians on Sunday and hope that Sweden loses its Scandinavian derby against Finland.
