The Czech national hockey team lost 3:6 to Sweden at the U20 World Championships in Buffalo, NY, in the United States on Thursday. The Czechs had a great start, and pulled ahead 1:0 in a power-play in the fourth minute. But the Swedes, who are considered one of the candidates for the gold, equalized just two minutes later and eventually won the first period 3:1. The Swedish team then built up a lead of 5:1 before 17-year-old Czech forward Michal Frk put in two goals, setting the score at 5:3 at the end of the second period. The Czechs however conceded one more goal in the final period, and will have to beat Russia to advance to the tournament’s quarterfinals.
