One goal is all the Czech Republic needed to move closer to the quarterfinals at the IIHF World Championship in Minsk.

Vladimir Sobotka struck for the Czechs' lone tally, just 39 seconds into their 1-0 win over Norway on Sunday. Jaromir Jagr picked up the secondary assist, extending his point streak to four games and tying him for the team lead with six points (3g-3a) in six games.
