It was a historic weekend for British hockey. For the first time in a quarter century, Team GB is in the top group of the IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship. On Saturday night, they stayed with Germany almost right till the end, losing 3-1. Sunday night against Canada wasn’t quite as close, but they didn’t get embarrassed either, falling 8-0.
Yasin Ehliz’s power-play goal midway through the third period broke a 1-1 tie and propelled Germany to a thrilling 3-1 win over Great Britain at Steel Arena in Kosice.
