Slovakia will be looking to raise their collective games against Slovenia after getting blown out by the United States in the first game of their preliminary round. Slovenia only features one NHL player in Anze Kopitar, but they managed to at least keep things interesting through two periods against Russia.
The same can’t be said for Slovakia’s first effort, as they gave up a whopping six goals in the second period against the Americans. They have a lot of work to do to get back to a more respectable goal differential, and they also need to get into the win column to prevent going down into a 0-2 hole with only one game left remaining in this round.
