Canada lost the bronze medal game

The Canadian national ice hockey team, which was considered the main favorite to win the 2024 World Championship, which ended the day before in the Czech Republic, was left without medals. For the first time in the last six editions of the championship, the North Americans took only fourth place in the tournament.

This became clear after the Canadians lost to Sweden in the third-place match. The game was very intriguing. In the first two periods, the rivals exchanged goals and entered the decisive stage of the bronze medal game with the score tied at 1-1.
