The Slovaks did not play the third power at the start of the second quarter and in the following session they came under tremendous pressure from the opponent. He did whatever he wanted on the ice in some places. Coach Feneš threw the pucks and they couldn’t play constructively. On the contrary, he was constantly burning in front of Latkoc, but the Slovak goalkeeper held a two-goal difference for a long time. In the 26th minute, he caught the raid of Samoskevich, and when he weakened, he dealt with the trials of Beniers and Coronato. But he surrendered in the 33rd minute. Dickinson’s bullet still fired, but it was short for Slaggert. In the second act, the Slovaks only hit the target at the end and can even zoom out. However, Slafkovsky’s backhand ended up on the sidelines and in a 4v4 match, Myklucha did not defeat the goalkeeper. The Americans shot the opponent 23: 2 in this segment.

The Slovaks entered the third term as it was traded and after only one minute and three seconds they were able to use the power game. Kažko passed Chromiak for a chance and drew hope for the points – 1:3. Immediately, he pushed to the end of Jedlička and Commesso had to do something to conserve his shot and subsequent hits in front of the goal line. In the 47th minute, Machar shot the bulls, who did not succeed for the second time. In the 50th minute, two Slovak players collided in the central area and the opponent’s striker managed to escape separately, but Latcucci managed to do so. In the 52nd minute, the puck ended in the American net, and the referees did not recognize the goal with a high stick. However, in the third term, the Slovaks continued to perform very well. Compared to the previous part, they skated much better, victorious in personal battles, and often managed to get the favorite under pressure. The Americans could make a final decision in the 55th minute, when they rushed 4 to 1, but Bear put on the ice and saved the situation. In the 57th minute, Mazur almost put the visitors in another lead as he penetrated the middle and shot from outside the penalty area directly, but his shot went over the crossbar directly. In the end, the Slovaks managed to capture the match in dramatic fashion, when they scored the connecting goal in a 4 vs. 4 match. The Americans lost the ball in the middle zone, the opponent entered the re-numbering, and Myklucha passed in front of Chromiak’s goal and adjusted it to 2: 3. The Slovaks managed to exploit Their chances in the final without a goalkeeper, but they are no longer able to equalize.
