Slovakia … The 31-year-old Tomáš Tatar was satisfied with the performance in the very first match. “The performance was perfect. We played well and we won. We led 2: 0. Too bad the small individual mistakes we scored after. It seems to me that someone thinks ‘they are French’ … But they play really well and physically. He is a challenging opponent. It cost us a lot of strength and we can be happy that we won and we have the first points, “said Tomáš Tatar, adding that the French equalized from 0: 2 to 2: 2 in a short time. The team warned of a similar situation before the meeting. He didn’t want the players to hang their heads if he didn’t succeed. “Even before the match, I said that we could not relax and do some of it if things did not go as planned. We led 2: 0. I don’t think it should happen to us to take the lead over France. Then we calmed down, started playing our hockey and scored a goal. We managed the third period super and kept it. ” Also read the Ice Hockey World Championships: Juraj Slafkovský: I don’t want to take credit for it, I’m Regend … Especially at 2: 2, the Slovaks failed several times and let the opponent run in or out of renumbering. “These are mistakes that should not happen to us. We failed and did not go back. We will definitely talk about it and look at the video. We need to improve. Patrik was excellent in the goal, he held us in important moments. Something like this happened to us against the French in preparation. We have led and made individual mistakes that can cost us the result. We need to learn from this. We have a young team that is fighting and wants to play nice offensive hockey. I hope we will succeed throughout the tournament, “said Tomas Tatar of the New Jersey Devils. At the end of the match, the French also tried a game without a goalkeeper. At that time, the first Tatar – Krištof – Lantoši attack was on the ice and he could score. Lantos, however, did not notice the free Tatar and instead of passing to him and able to score comfortably, he tried to shoot. He missed the goal and caused a forbidden release. “It is a pity. Such things should not happen. We complicate our lives unnecessarily. We could have passed and scored in an empty goal and it would be equipped. We are definitely not angry with ourselves. It happens that someone does not see someone. But then there was a throw-in in our zone and it could cost us points. We will definitely play. In 5 on 5 and offensive we played well. We had a chance. I think it will only graduate, “added the scorer of the second goal, when a rebounded puck in a power play arrived in the exposed goal.
