First points to avoid relegation for Slovenian team in Nur-Sultan


Slovenia earns the first victory of its difficult tournament against a team Hungary blessed by suspension (Janos Hari) and injuries (Balint Magosi).

In a balanced first period the status quo is broken at 13:47 by a shot from the distance by Miha Stebih, with goalie Adam Vay not perfect in the intervention. In the central period Slovenia quickly closes the question with two more goals in the first 3 minutes, both scores by Jan Drozg: at 20:59 taking a rebound after a shot by Robert Sabolic and at 23:16 after a pinball action solved by the decisive touch of Shawinigan Cataractes forward.

With Hungary uncapable to create real chances, Anze Kuralt scores the fourth goal at 30:22 with an individual action finished with a beautiful shot in the upper angle of goalie Vay. After the goal coach Majoros gets Bence Balisz in the net and his team has the first real chance with Krisztian Nagy firing on Gracnar. In a boring third period there is space for an easy goal by Anze Kopitar served from behind the net by David Rodman and another as much easy scored shorthanded by Andrej Hebar after a exchange with Ziga Pance.

Easy victory for Slovenia against a demotivated team Hungary, good for Ivo Jan team that secures the points necessary to stay in the Division Ia, bad news for Lithuania, now the only team still pointless

MVP: Bence Stipsicz – Jan Drozg

Ivo Jan: “It was really a good game, we responded very well after three tough defeats. We worked as a group and as a team”

Gergelj Majoross: “Our opponents played a really good game. For me side it was a game very similar with the one against Korea, we creates chances, especially in the second period, but we still have problems with the finalizations”
