Finally! Tymchenko ends it in OT, but the Dutch goalie stood on his head! He must've had at least 40 saves.

That was a really good game by the Dutch. I seriously expected them to pull off the upset and defeat the Ukrainians. Even so, to send the game to OT was a good effort by Netherlands.

Final games on Saturday will be intense. Poland could have really used a Dutch victory today to help them out, but they are going to have to defeat Ukraine themselves if they want to advance.

Poland had a close game with Estonia, just a 5-3 win. So I guess it was the day of the underdogs.

The problem isn't really the number of players (look at Slovenia), it's the lack of rinks in those countries. It's hard to develop any kind of a game when ice time is so rare and expensive.

North Korea is only decent because they have a northern climate and outdoor rinks, otherwise they would be just as bad as the rest of them.

Well when you're down to those numbers it's kind of a combination of everything. Plus no ice hockey culture to begin with. And Slovenia also has the great benefit of being part of the Austrian league system(both top tier, second tier and U20) which helps a lot to stay competitive.

Looks like Korea should have been starting Park all along. He probably could have got them a victory against Japan.

Still, great progress shown by the Koreans this year.

I'm undecided who to support for the relegation battle. Britain probably deserves to go down, but it would be a shame after their solid Olympic qualification run this year.

As for promotion, go Hungary of course! First place is important this year as Belarus gets automatic qualification for being hosts next year which means possibly only one relegation from the top division.

Both Hungary and Italy can clinch promotion with a regulation win tonight (actually an overtime win would be enought for Italy), too bad there is no stream.

Looser gets a 2nd chance tomorrow. If Hungary wins in overtime, we'll have a crazy day tomorrow.

I think if Belarus is 15th or 16th, the 14th place team goes down. That's how they did it when it happened to Germany

Italy back in the top pool! I hope they'll still be motivated to face Kazakhstan tomorrow, or else Hungary might regret their breakdown against South Korea.

Two teams get promoted to the elite division (the World Championship). Other than that, one team gets promoted and one relegated between all divisions.

Italy is going up.

Hungary already beat Kazakhstan.

Hungary needs to beat beat Japan in regulation and have Italy beat Kazakhstan in regulation to clearly get into 2nd promotion spot. I am not sure how tiebreakers work since they will be tied if HUN gets OT win + KAZ regulation loss or HUN regulation win + KAZ OT loss. Although Hungary beat Kazakhstan, Kazakhstan has a better goal differential and more goals for.

Hoping South Korea manages to stay up, for no reason other than they seem to be developing a decent hockey program and rising, nice to see.

The tie-breaking system for two teams with the same number of points in a standing will be the game between the two teams, the winner of the game taking precedence.

How much does that Korea loss stink now.. Hungary better hope Italy's ready to show up. Their own game isn't too easy either.

Even without dropping those two points, Hungary could still end up on the loosing of a three way tie if Kazakhstan beats Italy today. And as mentionned by joe89, they won't have it easy against Japan.

To make it simpler, Hungary needs any of these combinations:

- Italy wins in regulation, Hungary wins in regulation
- Italy wins in regulation, Hungary wins in OT
- Italy wins in OT, Hungary wins in regulation

any other combination and Kazakhstan is promoted.

Regarding the fight against relegation, GB needs to win in regulation, any other result and they are relegated.

Britain have been woeful in this Tournament I'm sorry to say. Impotent in front of goal, terrible power play. Not buying that Murphy has been 'on another level' in net either as the commentators claim.

Really thought that before this tournament Britain had a potential chance at coming 3 behind Italy and Kazakhstan. Clearly, I was wrong.
