Czech rally stalls in loss to Canada

A late rally from the Czech Republic fell just short Monday at the IIHF World Championship.

Trailing Canada, 4-1, after two periods, the Czechs rebounded with two goals in the third. Jaromir Jagr helped cut the deficit to 4-3 when he set up Tomas Hertl's power-play tally with seven minutes left in regulation.

The Czechs' bid to even the score was hampered by Jiri Hudler's interference penalty that left them shorthanded with 25 seconds to go. Jagr finished tied with a game-high four shots against Canada's James Reimer, who made 31 saves.

Jagr came out on the short end of the matchup with Devils’ coach Peter DeBoer, who’s serving as an assistant for Team Canada.

Through three games, Jagr has a goal and an assist for the Czech Republic, which has dropped two in a row since opening with an overtime win against Slovakia. Sweden edged the Czechs, 4-3, in a shootout on Sunday.

Jagr has 26 goals and 34 assists for 61 points in 63 world championship games.

Damien Brunner registered an assist in Switzerland’s 4-3 loss to host Belarus on Monday. He has two points (1g-1a) in three games at this year’s tournament, which has the Swiss still seeking their first victory. Albany (AHL) defenseman Raman Hrabarenka recorded two shots and was plus-1 in 22:17 of ice time for Belarus.

Brunner now has 14 points (5g-9a) in 17 career games at the world tourney.
