On 20 May in Prague the Finnish national ice hockey team will try to move on by defeating the Danes. The Danish national ice hockey team and the Austrians are direct competitors for the playoffs.

Finnish national ice hockey team

The Finnish national ice hockey team has two more games to make it into the top four, as the team is filled with top-notch NHL talent. Suomi has picked up wins over teams like Great Britain and Norway, but took a step back with a loss to Austria on Thursday.

In a hard-fought match against Canada, the Finnish hockey team lost 5-3, which dropped them to fifth place in the standings. They are tied with the Austrians for fourth place with one game in hand.

Oliver Kapanen leads the team in scoring with six goals, while Jeske Puljujarvi has five points.

Danish national ice hockey team

Denmark was going to compete for the quarter-finals thanks to an early victory over Austria. However, the Danes lost three matches in a row. All of the meetings turned out to be negative for them in regular time before they broke the streak with a victory over the British on Friday.

However, the 8-0 victory over Switzerland did not help the team. Denmark is now ranked sixth, one point behind Finland and Austria. The game against Suomi will demonstrate how fair the Danish victories were.

Finland – Denmark forecast

The Finnish national ice hockey team is the undisputed favourite of the match. The team has to prove its superiority.

The Danish national ice hockey team can show that they are worthy of playing at the World Championship, but it is hardly worth expecting. The difference in class is too high, and the Finns should have learnt from their mistakes.
