MOSCOW, May 13. /TASS/. The Czech Republic’s national ice hockey team continued its winning streak at the 2016 IIHF World Championship in Russia defeating on Friday afternoon in Moscow team Kazakhstan 3-1.
The current Group A leaders from the Czech Republic started the match against Kazakhstan, which played four matches at this championship losing three and winning one in overtime, with a goal on the sixth minute of the opening period.
Kazakhstan, however, put on a solid defense and launched numerous offensives on the Czech goal, which remained closed for Kazakh players throughout the second period.
In the opening minutes of the third period, Kazakhstan relaxed in defense, letting the Czech team score another goal.
With less than four minutes remaining before the final buzzer in the match, Kazakhstan’s Nigel Dawes scored a goal uncorking the goal of the Czech team. His goal however, was answered three minutes later by Czech Robert Cousal, who sealed the final score at 3-1.
Kazakhstan is playing its next group stage match against Latvia on Saturday, while the Czech team is taking a day off and takes on Denmark on Sunday.
