Two days after the 0:5 against co-favorite Sweden, the ÖEHV selection had to admit defeat in the third group game Denmark 2:6 (0:1, 1:1, 1:4). Although the Austrians created periods of pressure, they more or less beat themselves. The hard-nosed Danes, who took the lead through Nikolaj Ehlers (10th), were given several chances to score, especially with careless mistakes.

Thomas Raffl (28th) used a rebound after a shot by Peter Schneider to make it 1-1 in the meantime, goals from Niklas Andersen (34th), Jensen Aabo (47th), Nicklas Jensen (52nd / PP.), Matias Lassen (53rd) and Patrick Russell (58th) fixed a Danish victory. Schneider scored for Austria (49th). “We made stupid mistakes and we were punished for that,” analyzed Marco Rossi. For the native of Vorarlberg, the simple mistakes were also to blame. “It’s not acceptable at this level.” Team boss Roger Bader was disappointed after the clear defeat, but didn’t want to badmouth everything: “The result doesn’t reflect the performance. That might sound stupid with a 2:6, but I don’t care because we partially dominated the Danes. “

It won’t get any easier for Austria’s team, as they continue against the USA today (3.20 p.m. live on ORF 1). This is followed by the games against Germany (Friday), Finland (Saturday) and the possible final against Hungary (Monday) to decide who will stay in the A group.
