ICE HOCKEY: Slovak team playing its final championship match today

After the loss of Slovak national team against the Czech Republic on May 6, 3-2 ((1-0, 0-1, 2-1), the prospect of playing in the quarterfinals was quite thin. But then the Slovaks also lost their May 7 match to Finland (2-1; 0-1, 0-0, 2-0) with their single goal scored by Jan Gáborík.
