A close game between Denmark and Estonia was played as the 2 teams were fighting for a spot in the quarterfinals. After a late decider by captain Mikkel Skov Nilsen, the Danes won the game 3-2.

After yesterday’s heavy 25-0 loss vs Sweden, group B’s 4th placed Denmark made sure to be fit for fight ahead of the more important game against Group C winner Estonia.

No more than 5 goals were scored throughout the 60 minutes. The score was 2-2 after a couple of periods of Estonia having to catch up with their opponent who took the lead twice.

In a quick counter-attack, Emil Odfeldt found Mikkel Skov Nielsen who scored the decider with roughly 8 minutes to go of the game. On Thursday a tough opponent awaits for the Danes who’ll face Czech Republic in a battle for top 4.
