Two teams coming off very different opening games meet as Team Europe and the Czech Republic meet on Monday afternoon.
Team Europe comes in off a shutout win over the United States, while the Czechs were routed by Canada.
Team Europe made things look rather easy in their opening game as they took down the United States 3-0.
Goals from Marian Gaborik, Leon Draisaitl, and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare paced Team Europe, who has a chance to take control of the group with a win here.
A win here would give them a solid track to the semi-finals.
The key to their win over the USA and something they will need to do here is remain patient. Their defense was exceptionally good as they allowed very minimal 2nd chances and continued to clear the zone, not allowing for much possession in their own end.
The line of Gaborik, Nielsen, and Zuccarello was a giant key in the win, as they paced the game with the first goal and continuously controlled the tempo when on the ice.
The Czechs are in a lot of trouble.
They looked incredibly sloppy, unorganized, and flat out bad in a 6-0 loss to Canada in the opening game. They quickly fell behind 3-0 and never came close to making a comeback attempt as they were outshot 50-27.
If the Czechs don’t figure things out quickly here, a loss would almost certain them an exit from this tournament.
There will be a change in goal as Petr Mrazek will replace Michal Neuvirth in net here against Team Europe. However, all the blame can’t be put on Neuvirth for the 6-0 loss to Canada.
The defense was horrid and will certainly have to change their effort here against Team Europe. Canada controlled everything in the Czechs zone and won almost ever 50/50 play. If that trend continues here, it could be another long night for the Czech Republic team.
