Post-match votes (source: iihf.com): Damien Fleury, captain of France: “This happens every time we play with these guys. They play hard, well in defense and are difficult to score. It’s great that we won. We felt that we were physically better, that we lost some energy, so we pushed us to score in overtime. “Alex Trivellato, Italian defender:” How are we feeling? We feel terrible. We drove within 59 minutes and turned it around. It is hard. Both teams had a chance, it was a balanced match. ”Do you want a hockey stick? Win stone, paper, scissors:
