The world hockey champion has been decided
Team Canada defeated Team Germany to win the Ice Hockey World Championship. The final match in Tampere, Finland, ended with a score of 5-2.
The meeting had a sensational start. The Germans, being the bookmakers' outsider in the game, were the first to open the scoring. On 8 minutes, John-Jason Peterka got on the scoresheet.
Immediately for the delay of game the Canadians were left in the minority, but the Bundestim could not double their lead, instead conceding a return puck.
In the second period, the scenario repeated itself: Germany took the lead and Canada tied it up.
The denouement came in the third twenty minutes, when Blais and Tofoli eliminated the question of the winner.
For the Maple Leafs, it was their 28th World Cup victory.
The Germans repeated their success in 1953, when the FRG team took second place at the planetary championships held in Zurich and Basel.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, a few hours earlier the hockey World Cup bronze medal match took place, which ended in a historic sensation that embarrassed propagandists from Russia.
