Latvia beat USA to win bronze at World Cup

At the World Ice Hockey Championship in Finland, Latvia won the bronze medal on home soil. The Baltics defeated the USA 4:3 (2:2,0:0,1:1,1:0) in the minor final in Tampere, Finland on Sunday in front of thousands of Latvian fans. First World Cup medal. North Americans, on the other hand, finished fourth, the same as the previous year. Canada will then face Germany in their 28th World Cup final.

Roberts Bukarts gave the Latvians the lead (8′), Rocco Grimaldi immediately equalized (10′). Janice Jacks fired the outsider in front again seven minutes later. Moments later, the puck landed in the hitter’s face and was unfortunately deflected, requiring a visit to the dentist. However, once again, it was Grimaldi, top scorer at the previous World Cup, who leveled the game with his seventh World Cup goal.

After a scoreless middle third, Matt Coronado put the American boys ahead for the first time (47′) before Christian Rubins scored the Latvian match-winner. The 25-year-old from AHL team Calgary Wranglers scored first in a 3:3 (55th) after an assist from Reharts Bukards, who was last under contract with KAC. Rubins scored 1:22 into overtime to give the Balts the win.
