WFC 2019: These countries made it to the quarterfinals – Day 5 summarized [Patron Only]

Here’s what happened during the first day of the playoffs, Day 5!

The fifth day of the WFC is over! All playoffs have been played and tomorrow and Friday, the tournament heads into the quarterfinals already!

We’ll have a look at all games that have been played today:

Thailand – Japan  (13-16th place game)
Latvia – Norway (playoff game)
Germany – Singapore (playoff game)
Estonia – USA (13-16h place game)
Slovakia – Denmark (playoff game)
Poland – Australia (playoff game)

Thailand – Japan 3-6

After Thailand’s big win against USA and Japan’s excellent performance against Norway (a narrow 1-2 loss) many expected this to an even match. Japan boldly took the lead in the first period, however, putting pressure on the Thai defense, at times overwhelming them. By the end of the first period, Japan led with 4-1. Thanks to good defending in the second period, Thailand was never allowed back into the game and the 3-6 score was the result of this.

Fact: in 2011, the record for the hardest ice hockey shot was broken: Denis Kulyash (Russia) managed to shoot with a speed of […]
