Two Slovak cities, Bratislava and Kosice, will accept the games. Domestic squad will hold group stage meetings in the Slovak capital Bratislava. Fights with the participation of Russian hockey players will take place within the walls of the sports and entertainment complex Steel Arena.
Rivals of the Russians
Our hockey players are in group B. They will be confronted by the following teams:
- Czech Republic;
As in the past, the domestic squad was in the same company with the Swedes and the Czechs - the main contenders for the first place in the octet B. The results of the Russian team at the 2019 World Hockey Championship will largely depend on the outcome of the fights with these teams.
The remaining teams should not cause difficulties. The exception, however, is Switzerland, which has made significant progress in recent years. But Russians, as a rule, rarely experience problems in games with the Swiss.
In order not to run into a strong opponent already in the quarter-finals, our masters should take first place in octet B.
Schedule of the Russian national team games at the 2019 Ice Hockey World Championship
Russian hockey masters in the group stage will have to play seven games. Their schedule will be announced later.
What place will Russia occupy at the 2018 World Cup hockey
Russians are one of the undoubted leaders of the upcoming championship. Together with Canada, the Czech Republic,In Sweden and Finland they are in the top 5 contenders for the hockey crown in every edition of the World Cup.
Unfortunately, in the last edition of the championship, our guys did not succeed. But it all started promising. First wards Vorobiev crush the Austrians and French with the same score 7: 0. Then Belarus got under the rink of the Red Car - 6: 0. In the third game in extra time, Russia lost to the Czechs. This defeat, coupled with the loss of Sweden, did not allow the Russians to rise above 2nd place in Octet A.
In the ¼ playoffs, Ilya Vorobyov’s charges met with the Canadians. The hockey fight turned out to be hot. But, alas, luck was not on the side of the national squad. The match ended in defeat wards Ilya Vorobyov with a score of 4: 5.
In the upcoming edition of the tournament, the domestic squad must take into account past mistakes. This is the main task of the coaching staff. But the efforts of the coaches are unlikely to benefit if the Russian national team at the world hockey championship is not strong. At the 2018 World Cup, he was, frankly, rather weak. There were not enough experienced guys from the NHL. But the lack of overseas legionnaires did not experience Sweden.This largely allowed the Scandinavians to win gold medals.
