Czechs had no problems with Switzerland on day 1

The Czech Republic started the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Cup with a big win over Switzerland. The Swiss took the lead early, but couldn’t hold it for long. In the end, they suffered a harsh 6-1 defeat from the hosts, who took the game under control on a five-minute power play in the first period.

Game report

It was a terrific start for Switzerland as Justin Sigrist scored already after 79 seconds into the game. His backhanded dump-in from the corner surprised Skarek and found its way into the Czech goal.

Home team didn’t catch the pace and early after the first goal, Simic appeared alone on the crease. However, Skarek managed to make the stop this time.

On the other side, Zaetta didn’t catch Salda’s attempt from the right wing and only moved the puck towards Matyáš Svoboda who quickly put it behind him for the equalizer.

Then Ramon Tanner got a game misconduct and Czechs turned the game around in the following five-minutes power play. At first Filip Zadina found an open net after some great one-two crossing passes exchanged with Galvas.

Shortly after Zadina’s goal, Kurashev got a minor penalty and the Swiss went down to three men, which only resulted in David Svoboda’s goal tap-in on Nečas’ one timer.

Already with the two-goal lead and just seconds after end to the long penalty, the Czechs scored once more. Ostap Safin got a great pass across the crease from Galvas and roofed the puck above Zaetta’s glove.

Both goalies showed some great saves after the break, so the scoreline didn’t change much. Martina Necas circled the goal all the way into the spot between circles to snap it past Zaetta. That was still early in the second period, but then both goalies shut the door for the rest of it.

The summary of the last part looks pretty much the same. The Czechs scored again after three minutes played on a massive error by Kobler. The Swiss defenseman went in front of his own goal, but couldn’t get the puck away from Filip Chytil’s aggressive fore-checking. Chytil then fortunately poked the puck right into the goal.

The Czechs controlled the rest of the game and got their first win at the tournament.
