The Czech national hockey team lost to Denmark 4:3 at the Ice Hockey World Championships in Minsk on Saturday in a dramatic game. The Czech squad went ahead early on in the first quarter with Jakub Klepiš and Jaromír Jágr scoring in quick succession. The Danes responded with a fast, aggressive game scoring their first goal before the end of the first quarter. A third goal from Jakub Kyndl in the third quarter briefly gave the Czechs a two score lead but hopes of a secure victory were unexpectedly dashed by a dramatic second and third goal from Denmark just four minutes before the end of the game. The game was decided in a penalty shootout. The Czech squad was dogged by health problems with several players fighting off flu symptoms and Tomáš Hertl out of the game against Denmark for health reasons.
