Great Britain went down 8-0 to Canada Sunday in Košice, but were far from disgraced against the side number one in the world according to the IIHF rankings.

“After that game I got a bit emotional at the end, that was a very special game. We battled hard all of the way through the game, tried to work as much as we could, and tried to take it all in,” added forward and player of the game Ben Davies. “They’re so clinical straight off the bat, they need a split second to do everything and the speed of making every play is phenomenal. But it was really cool to play in.”

After two games, Team GB have no points – but have a rest day tomorrow and then face Denmark who have only picked up one for their opening pair of matches.

“I thought we played a great game against Germany, #8 in the world, and then today against Canada we played well and what more can we do – they’re on another planet to us! The players can be proud of themselves” said Head Coach Pete Russell. “The most positive thing so far is that we’ve kept going, and skating. We knew this would be a long process, to wait for our chances to have a go, and so far we haven’ disgraced ourselves whatsoever.”
