In what can only be described as a roller coaster of a game Hungary defeated Canada by 8-10 after taking control of the game late in the third period.
Canadian captain Cameron Buck shows the way for the Canadians with a goal within the first two minutes of the game. But within minutes Hungary’s Norbert Kvasznicska answers with a goal of his own. Toward the middle of the first period it looks like Hungary might be getting a grip on the game when Denes Nagy gives them a 2-4 lead. But Canada come back and after switching the lead a couple times Canada’s Cedric Grenapin gives Canada a 6-5 upper hand going into the third period.
But in the third Hungary step up. Tamas Hoffmann scores two in a row and even though Canada score in five on three and then five on four, Hungary go on to win 8-10. This means Hungary snag the 13th place and Canada finish 14th.
