Ice Hockey World Cup: quarterfinals in sight


DThe organizers of the Ice Hockey World Championship have come up with some ideas for making the framework program in Kosice's city center, where many other construction sites are witness to a need for redevelopment, attractive to guests from near and far.

Gusts of wind whip the rain through the streets and let the fans usually choose the direct route to the Steel Arena, where they have been offered by the main characters of this championship matches quite appealing ideas.

The German entertainment contribution on Tuesday evening was not quite as interesting, but he fulfilled its purpose. The selection of Toni Söderholm succeeded in 4: 1 (1: 0, 2: 1, 1: 0) against France the next result of attention: It was the third victory in the third game. So far, everything is going according to plan with nine points.
