The Slovak national team advanced to the E-group of the next round of the Ice Hockey World Championship taking place in Bratislava and Košice without a single point, the Sme daily wrote.

Its game against Russia on Tuesday, May 3, began at a furious pace, with the score at 1:1 after just 90 seconds following goals by Radulov and Šatan. First, both teams used mostly breaks; later they scored using power-plays. Slovakia led briefly in the second third, but later lost its advantage; a goal by Morozov secured the Russian victory.

With the final score 4:3 to Russia, Slovakia goes through to the next round, but without any points. On Friday, May 6, it will meet one of the Czech Republic or Finland, and on Saturday, May 7, it will play the other. On Monday, May 9, it will play either Latvia or Denmark, depending on the results of other matches.
