Bronze Medal Game: Detroit Red Wings At The 2014 World Championship


Two Detroit Red Wings saw action in day fifteen of the 2014 World Championship in Minsk, Belarus.

Gustav Nyquist was on the ice Sweden and Jakub Kindl was on the ice Czech Republic. Tomas Tatar and Slovakia were knocked out of the tournament in the preliminary round, while Danny DeKeyser and Justin Abdelkader of the USA were knocked out in the first Medal Round.

Sweden was up against the Czech Republic at 9:30 a.m.

Czech Republic vs Sweden – Bronze Medal Game

Jakub Kindl had 20:39 minutes of ice time, registered three shots on net, and was even in their loss. Kindl played the second most minutes for the Czechs and actually had a solid game, but it was not enough to pick up a victory.

Gustav Nyquist had 14:56 minutes of ice time, placed one shot on net, lost both face-offs he took, and was even in the game. Nyquist did not factor into the Swedes victory, but he made a few nice plays and did not hurt Sweden when he was on the ice.

The Czech Republic lost to Sweden 3-0.

Russia – Gold Medal

Russia beat Finland 5-3.

Finland – Silver Medal

    I tuned into the game right after Jagr hooked Jarnkrok… On the ensuing PP Nyquist had a great rush. He received the puck just inside his own blueline, picked up speed, then tucked it through one guys feet while dodging around them (somewhat like Tatar did against Dallas, minus the attempted check and the two other players), and then proceeded to split the D and he got a good shot off. Salak made a great save stretching out and just getting the glove on it. That rush was pretty impressive to see though. I wish I’d recorded it or something.
