"It's muggy outside, and the quality of the ice suffered a bit," said coach Jiří Veber afterward. "But this is the same for all teams. The game took a lot out of the players for both teams, so it will be important to recuperate quickly. On Tuesday evening we can expect another tough battle with Canada."
Tuesday's Czech-Canada game starts at 19:00 CET, 1pm ET and 10am PT. In the Czech Republic, the game can be seen live on ČT4 television and online at ct24.cz/sport.
