There was a huge sensation in the semi-finals of the Ice Hockey World Championship
The U.S. team sensationally lost in dramatic overtime to Germany and could not reach the final of the Ice Hockey World Championship. The match in Tampere, Finland, ended with a score of 4:3.
The Americans, as the clear favorites in the match, immediately seized the initiative, completely dominating the ice. David Quinn's team scored two goals in the first four minutes.
However, the U.S. national team could not go into halftime with such an advantage. Tiffels and Schuber scored twice against Desmitt (2-2).
The States took the lead in the ninth minute of the second period. They held their winning score until the end of the game, when a minute and a half before the final siren, Nebels put the game into overtime.
Tiffels scored the golden puck in the eighth minute, leaving the two-time world champions without a third title.
For German hockey players, the final at the 2023 World Cup was the first final since 1953. At that time, Germany came in second place. Germany had never won the World Championship.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, a few hours earlier, Canada made it to the final by beating Latvia.
