    Great win for Great Britain, especially as Ukraine hoped for Promotion.

    Maybe Poland-Kazakstan will be "the Final"? (Thursday 14.00 GMT, maybe a stream from that game?)

    Hoping for Poland to return to A-level World Championships in 2012, although I have no idea about their players. One guy (Borzecki) playing in DEL and other (Rzeszutko) in British league. Other players seem to be from Polish league.

    Somehow it would make sense if Kazakstan would've easily won the tournament with roster full of KHL players, but it doesn't seem to be that easy.

    I'm expecting wins against Estonia and Lithuania, Poland will be hard though. There is still a chance Team GB can get gold. great tournament so far.
     
  6. Go Poland!

    Ukraine tomorrow.

    Great Britain scored 7 goals in the first period against Estonia, rest of the game was scoreless. :laugh: That's bit weird, seems that they completely stopped playing.

    Poland-Ukraine later tonight.
     
  8. What time is Poland/Ukraine on for North America?

    4-1 Ukraine final. They still have a chance to be promoted, but I am not sure of the tie breaking rules.

    It seems that there's still many teams who could get promotion:

    Kazakstan: Three games, only team that's still unbeaten. Won GB only 2-1 though, and they have two strong opponents; Poland and Ukraine left.

    Poland: 2 wins and a 4-1 loss to Ukraine. Also pretty tough schedule remaining with matches against Kazakstan and Great Britain.

    Ukraine: Has same record with Poland, which they did beat, but lost surprisingly to Great Britain on their opening match. Should beat Estonia, but Kazakstan is a difficult opponent on their last game.

    Great Britain: Huge victory on their opening match against Ukraine, then just a slight defeat to Kazakstan. Easy win against Estonia though stopped playing after the first period, and currently leading Lithuania 5-1 after two periods. Important final match against other team which must win to keep their hopes for promotion alive, Poland.

    If Kazakstan wins both of their games, they'll sweep promotion, but if they lose either to Poland or Ukraine, the situation will get really tricky. We'll see on Saturday night who'll play against the "Big Boys" next year in Sweden/Finland.

    The relegation match will be between Estonia and Lithuania as expected. This battle of the Baltic could go either way, so no clear favourite. Interesting that Estonia has Lithuanian head coach...

    Also little look to the Group A as there isn't own thread for it:

    Only five teams participating as Japan withdraw due to what has happened earlier in there... Japan will remain in Div I next year and 5th placed team will be relegated.

    Italy:
    Italy is unbeaten after three matches, but only narrow victories against notably worse opponents: 2-0 against Spain, 3-2 against the Netherlands and only clear victory against Korea, 6-0.

    Hungary:
    Hosting nation has been much more promising than other favourite Italy, beating Korea and the Netherlands rather easily. Should be able to beat Spain before the final match of the tournament. Hungary roster features couple former AHLers, forward Janos Vas and goalie Levente Szuper. Their head coach is former NHL head coach Ted Sator.

    The Netherlands:
    After three games, Netherlands' record is 1-2, but they did beat only equal opponent Spain 8-2. Should also win against Korea and place third in the tournament.

    Relegation match in this group should be between Spain and Korea Republic, which neither has yet won a game. Spain might be the slight favourite. This match is second to last game of the tournament, and it will be played on Saturday, 14:00 GMT.

    Final of this tournament, which will actually be the last game also, will be played on Saturday, 17:30 GMT between Hungary and Italy. Winner of this match will receive promotion to the A-level IIHF World Championships in 2012.

    the korea- hungary match was actually pretty close.. it was 3-3 with only 5 minutes to go before hungary scored 3 quick goals. I was hoping korea couldve taken them to OT.. it would have been a massive upset.

    Kazakstan did beat Poland 2-4, so it seems that Ukraine is our only hope. Poland is now out of considerations.

    IF Ukraine wins against Kazakstan (and Estonia, which they should be capable to do), and GB beats Poland, they'll all have 4-1 record.

    Goal differences of each of them in games between them:
    Great Britain: 2 games, 6-4 (+2)
    Kazakstan: 1 game, 2-1 (+1)
    Ukraine: 1 game, 3-5 (-2)

    This means that Great Britain would be promoted, if they'll win against Poland and Ukraine will beat Kazakstan by less than 4 goals. Am I right?

    EDIT: Ukraine-Estonia 1-0 after first period.

    If Ukraine beats Kazakstan 3-0 or less
    Great Britain: 2 games, 6-5 (+1)
    Kazakstan: 2 game, 2-4 (-2)
    Ukraine: 2 game, 6-5 (+1) GB promotes cause they've won against Ukraine

    If Ukraine beats Kazakstan 4-1 or more
    Great Britain: 2 games, 6-5 (+1)
    Kazakstan: 2 game, 3-5 (-2)
    Ukraine: 2 game, 7-6 (+1) Ukraine promotes

    If Ukraine beats Kazakstan in overtime or Kazakstan wins then Kazakstan promotes

    I was actually wrong; Netherlands lost 3-6 to Korea. Now it's looking really bad for Spain.

    Does anyone know any free international stream for the Poland-Great Britain match? Really would like to see it.

    Estonia will be relegated from Group B after losing 5-2 to Lithuania in their final game.

    Ukraine leading 2-1 in the 3rd period (50 minutes played) :handclap: Looking good...:yo:

    Also Italy-Hungary 3-1 after first... not looking so good.

    EDIT: Noooo... Kazakstan scored, it's now 2-2 (after 52 min). Kazakstan and Italy promoting would be so boring.

    EDIT II: It's over. :cry: Anyway, I'm really impressed of GB's performance, they were so close to promoting. :handclap:

    Kazakhstan and Italy are both going to the Elite division for 2012. Both were the two teams relegated from last year.

    Each of them were close to not advancing. Kazakhstan needed overtime to beat Ukraine; a Ukrainian win in that game would have sent Great Britain to the Elite division for the first time since 1994. Italy also needed overtime to secure promotion, defeating host Hungary, who were in the top division in 2009 after a 70 year absense.
