Denmark accounted for a strong third period in Friday night's victory against Belarus.
Against Slovakia, the Danes did not have the same energy to force - instead it was Slovakia who scored two goals and decided the match.
Heavy revenge for the Slovaks after the 1-8 loss to Switzerland.
Thus, Slovakia goes up in group lead - and is close to securing the quarterfinals.
In the Slovak team, it was Leksand star Petr Cehlarik who was behind both goals against Denmark.
He did the first thing himself - and then he was part of the origin of Oskarshamnsbacken Adam Janosik's 2-0.
Tomorrow Sunday, Slovakia will face a pressured Tre Kronor, who must win to have a continued chance in the quarterfinals.
Denmark had no super positions to threaten for reduction and equalization, where former SHL goalkeeper Julius Hudacek kept a clean sheet.
Now the team must win the last group game against the Czech Republic, to have a chance in the quarterfinals.
- I do not think Denmark comes up and threatens Hudacek.
A player like Niklas Jensen is probably a little disappointed in himself, he is the one who must do it if Denmark is to succeed, says SVT expert Daniel Rudslätt.Keywords:
