Both teams played with high intensity even in personal fights, which gradually increased, but the game was clean. From the beginning, the Germans attacked the Slovak passing high. Regenda had a chance to take the lead on Regenda’s dazzling drive up the left, but the opportunity fizzled away as his shot went just over the bar after 2 minutes. In the 5th minute, J. Müller fired hard from behind the walls, but Rybár was not surprised. In the 15th minute, Takáč made a mistake in the back guard, who wanted to avoid the attacking opponent, but did not hit the puck. He got to Ehl, who tried to push him through Rybár’s concrete, but failed. Tatar’s best chance was Slovakia’s Krištof, but the captain’s shot went just wide. A minute later, the Germans were eliminated unnecessarily and the Germans put a lot of pressure in the power play. However, the Slovaks blocked their missiles well and the Fisherman held them.
