Denmark Rallies By Czech Republic In 2014 Ice Hockey World Championship

It wasn’t looking good when Denmark fell behind 3-1 early in the third period but the team showed no quit. A power-play goal in the final four minutes and a last minute strike helped Denmark knot the game up at 3 a piece and push it to overtime.

The teams skated through a scoreless overtime and straight into the shootout. Denmark’s netminder Simon Nielsen turn aside all three shots faced in the shootout as Mikkel Boedker tallied the winning goal to lift Denmark to their comeback victory.

It’s the second time Czech Republic has blown a 3-1 lead and gone on to lose. Although they have picked up points in all games but one, the team finds itself sitting in fourth currently of Group A after a disappointing loss. As for Denmark, their win today moves them to sixth place of Group A and feeds a little motivation for their remaining games of the tournament ahead.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
