Denmark vs Korea

First Period

  • Denmark playing in the offensive zone
  • Except there. Yikes guys.
  • Ok that Gatorade commercial is awful. Make it go away.
  • Not a lot going on in this game so far, shots are 6-3 for Denmark with five to go in the first.
  • Boedker with a pair of chances, but still no dice.
  • Matt Dalton is being annoyingly solid in net.

Second Period

  • Ah power play time.
  • TOOK THEM TO THE LAST FRACTION OF A SECOND, BUT I WILL 100% TAKE IT. FRAAAANNNSSSSS!!!!!
  • UHG JENSEN WAS ROBBED.
  • God damn it Denmark. (JARED, THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT.)
  • Korea giving me heart attacks. Come on boys. YOU BEAT FINLAND. YOU CAN DO THIS.
  • Denmark, you HAVE to capitalize on this power play.
  • Freddie. Stop it. Denmark stop it. Get your act together. ISTG.
  • Oh jeez. Jannik...don't be hurt, please don't be...
  • JESPER JENSEN GIVES DENMARK THE LEAD. (Yes, same Jensen who was ROBBED before)
  • Oh it was pretty too.
  • Good. Denmark (and the crowd) appears to have woken up.
  • Oh no...Oh be ok Jesper... (Jesper Jensen Aabo, not the other Jesper Jensen...cause this isn't confusing at alll.) And he took a penalty. This is fine. Everything is fine.
  • Thank you Freddo.
  • I'm not nervous, you're nervous.

Third Period

  • Denmark back at full strength.
  • Really Nichlas? That was so unnecessary. Denmark to the kill. gulp
  • I don't like this. I don't like this at all.
  • GAH.
  • Come on, clock...go faster...
  • Danish power play with half a period left...come on...
  • Get. It. OUT.
  • Thanks.
  • GET. IT. OUT. DENMARK.
  • Five minutes to go...
  • Please actually do something on this power play, guys.
  • OH MY GOD YES.
  • HAAARDDDTTTT. What a play by Nielsen and Hardt. Wow. Just wow.
  • Two minutes to go...
  • Extra skater for Korea, 1:30 to go...
  • Denmark’s player of the game is Philip Larsen
  • THAT'S THREE STRAIGHT. THEY'VE LEAPFROGGED LATVIA AND CANADA. THEY'RE SECOND IN THE POOL!! (For now)
  • DENMARK WINS 3-1!!

Highlight of the Game

Jesper Jensen's goal might not have been quite as pretty as the insurance goal, but it was still a good one.
