The players from the Tatras lost their two-goal lead in the middle of the duel, when the French punished the hesitations and took control of the match. According to coach Craig Ramsay, the match was not dramatized by the bad game of his charges, but by the great determination of the opponent. “We made a lot of mistakes, but many of them came from the great pressure that the French put us into. They played very well, they fought hard, “he stated after the match. He expects the same strength and fighting spirit from his team in the next matches. “There will be no easy matches in this tournament. We have to be ready to play every minute of every single match. We can’t relax or play emphatically. We have to be strong, hold the puck more so that we don’t have to chase after it. ” The coach of Slovakia was not so sorry that the first attack was not more productive in terms of goals, but rather the reason why he could not score. He was traditionally worried about the lack of shots on the goal, which went at the expense of nice game combinations and passes. “You always want more from the first attack, but I think they felt a lot of pressure. They had some good substitutions, but no one shot. Everyone wants to play nice hockey, this is one of the main problems of the team.

One of the things that makes a team good is the ability to find a way to win. You don’t always win because you’re better, but you succeed when you find a way. Today’s match was proof of that. ” Despite several mistakes, Craig Ramsay was pleased with the players’ performance. He did not forget to praise the goalkeeper Patrik Rybár, who became the best player in Slovakia. He didn’t blame him for two quick goals. He understood his situation and promised to work with the players to help him more in the next matches, allowing him to concentrate more on catching pucks. “Sometimes it is difficult for every goalkeeper to just stand there and do nothing. And then suddenly face two breaks within five minutes. We can’t play like this. The fisherman fought and held us today. He has taken some good interventions. He can be proud of himself. He was also rewarded for his performance. ” Also read the Program of matches of Slovakia at the World Hockey Championship 2022
