  • Day 3: 2008 IHWC Div I B in Sapporo

Japan is victim of stupid rules, no video goalie in Div I. WCs. Hungary played good until 3-0, then we got tired, trying to defend our lead. I’m not proud of this win, Japan should have deserved to tie the game here. Videos only tomorrow, I could not record the game. 

    Yeah, I think you’ve summed up very nicely what I read from Japanese fans too. Both them and you are very calm and levelheaded about this. It’s just too bad for Japan now. The only hope remaining is for Japan to beat Ukraine and Ukraine to beat Hungary, and for the goal differentials to work out. That’s a lot to ask for, but something really funky like that has happened before with the World Baseball Classic for Japan in 2006, so it’s not impossible (but Japan maybe have used up its luck there😛 )

    (From IHF forums)

    Croatia beat Estonia in SO, congrats Croatia! Their 4th win in Division I and the first in 5 years (it was Estonia back then too.)

    Ukraine took a 4-0 lead in the 1st period, then just cruised to their victory.
