The 2019 World Hockey Championship is about midway through the round robin stage. The five representatives of the Calgary Flames in the tournament all find themselves on teams that are in pretty good shape in regards to the medal round.
The Czechs got into a 2-0 hole against Latvia on Thursday, but then turned things around to pull off an impressive 6-3 victory. Michael Frolik had two third period assists to help the Czechs cement their win.
The Czechs (3-1-0) are back in action on Friday when they face Italy (0-4-0). They’re currently fourth in Group B behind Russia, Switzerland and Sweden.
