that was pivotal loss

belarus had their chances against norway, played their game pretty well, but they didn't manage to score more goals.

then zalamay and gavrus both had a big game vs france.

now belarus playing against denmark and they're leading 2-0, while shooting 18 times against 4 denmark shots in the 1st period. seems that it'll be another win.

so, belarus once again missed opportunity to return to elite division of junior hockey. though there were some bright spots - gavrus, zalamay, lisovets. i really hope that lisovets will be drafted this year, he plays men game at his age.
gavrus proved that he's already grown and he dominates at junior level
another plus - belarus outshot their opponent in every game played, so there were able to create, but struggled to convert sometimes.

congrats to norway, though.
