Munich/Helsinki – Germany got off to a good start at the 2022 Ice Hockey World Championship.
A remarkable 3:5 (0:2, 1:3, 2:0) against record world champion Canada let the DEB team in the second game of group A at the World Cup a 2:1 (0:0, 2:1, 0: 0) against Olympic bronze medalist Slovakia.
Above all, the victory against the Slovaks, but also the strong final third against defending champion Canada give hope for a successful tournament for the team of national coach Toni Söderholm, who once again seems highly focused at this year's Ice Hockey World Championships in his home country Finland.
In the third group game tonight (from 8:20 p.m.), outsiders France are now waiting for the German national team.
At the 2019 Ice Hockey World Championships in Slovakia, the DEB team had a clear 4-1 victory against today's opponent.

"It's a passionate team.
They live on emotions.
You have to have in mind where they come from.
You want to prove yourself.
Many will say they don't belong here," said 44-year-old Söderholm about the French before the game: "It's the typical opponents where you think you'll fall asleep a bit at some point in the game, and then something happens." The Finn did not reveal whether he was backing NHL goalkeeper Philipp Grubauer or Berlin champion goalkeeper Mathias Niederberger.
A win would be extremely important for a place in the quarter-finals.
After the game on this Monday evening, the selection of the German Ice Hockey Federation (DEB) had the only time in the preliminary round two days without a game before Denmark is also waiting in Helsinki on Thursday - in this game a preliminary decision about qualification for the round of the last round should be made eight fall.
Finally, it is still against the blatant outsider Kazakhstan and against the strong start against Switzerland.
