Olympic qualifiers

Norway qualified from their first qualification group tonight as they drew Hungary 3-3 in Stavanger. Earlier this weekend they collected wins over China (16-2), and Serbia (21-0). We will face Denmark, Switzerland and Japan in the last qualifying tournament in February. Good start by our boys!

Well a (Hungarian, no less) poster on another forum said that the refs were biased towards Norway and that at least one of the Norwegian goals shouldn't have counted.

Did you see the game or any highlights? I haven't been able to find any..

What I do know is that Hungary got extremely lucky on their 3rd goal. Our goalie went behind our net to clear a dump-in, but the puck took a crazy bounce from the boards and went in the net. Didn`t watch the game btw, but from what I`ve read the draw was very deserved from a Norwegian point of view.

Hey rangers & mole!

Rangers, mole is reffering to a couple of posters on another site we are a part of who are from Hungary. While I didn't get to see any highlights as well, here is a snippet from iihf.com

Quote:
....But Norway managed to get that all important equalizer, that will send them to Switzerland. With just 95 seconds left on the clock Patrick Thoresen redirected a Tore Vikingstad-shot in front of Levente Szuper.
Hungary furiously protested as Thoresen seemed to have his stick too high, but referee Peter Jonak decided to allow the goal, just as he did earlier in the game.

“The finish was great. Couldn't have writte a better plot myself. We were lucky with the goal, but so were they with their third goal. I would not know if the decisive goal was high stick. That's hard to see for referees whether the stick is an inch too high or not.”

Hungary's coach Pat Cortina saw it differently: "According to me, their third goal was a clear case of a high stick. But I am still happy that we didn't lose a game in this tournament. This was a good preparation for the division one world championship in Hungary."....
source: http://www.iihf.com/news/iihfpr1105.htm

Additionally, the 2-1 goal for Norway was also contested:

Quote:
Norway had taken a 2-1 lead on a controversial goal. Jonas Andersen got behind his marker with a great move and set up Mads Hansen, whose shot seemed to be saved by Szuper. But just as referee Peter Jonak blew his whistle the puck was in the net. After consulting with his linesmen, Jonak made the goal count, much to the delight of the Norwegian crowd.
According to the same report, Hungary's third goal was flukey as well, as it took a weird bounce on the board and into an empty net...

Well Gurj, I did hear something about a possible high stick on the last Norway goal, but I mean come on...these things happen in hockey! Sometimes they go for you and sometimes they go against you. Hardly enough evidence to start thinking about a conspiracy IMO The games were played here in Stavanger and I was planning on going, but then I had to work that weekend. Too bad.

Yay for Norway. Catch up to Sweden and Finland!


Not too familiar with hockey from Hungary, but I'm sure they're in a state of growth too, a few years ago they would have been smoked.

Agreed, you get some bounces and you don't get others.... Was there much media coverage of the Olympic qualifiers in your country?

Let me ask you a few questions that I'm sure you've been asked a million times: How come hockey never became part of the Norweigen sports culture like it did in Sweden and Finland? Can it change? And do you consider that Denmark has passed Norway (based on getting higher results during the past few years)?

True, Hungary is making strides now - let's hope they continue!

The media coverage of hockey here is generally speaking pretty bad. They didn`t show the olympix qualifiers on TV for instance and they never show the UPC League games either. Hockey just isn`t as popular here as it is in Sweden and Finland. In those countries hockey`s an obsession, a way of life, but not here. We lack quality coaches and we lack ice sheets. People would rather send their kiddies to Tennis than to hockey practice (many think hockey is a violent and aggressive sport). It`s all getting better though with articles and writings about whats going on, so I`d definately say the overall coverage is improving. This is great for the sport and we`re definately moving in the right direction. And I think we are better than Denmark, and that we will distance ourselves from them in the short future!

Since we're reciting completely irrelevant stats and results.
Denmark, major trophies: 1.
Norway, major trophies: 0.

The equalizer with 95 seconds left on the clock was perfectly legal. The stick was well under the crossbar, something which was displayed on the television pictures.

The 2-1 goal could be more controversial, as one might make a case for Szuper beeing attacked before Hansen lured the puck in. But the shots was 39-14 and Hungarys 3rd goal was as fluuukey as they come.

I've said mine on why Norway are as they are. More here:

At last some more irrelevant stats, to please out danish tøsepige

This coming weekend Norway, Denmark, Switzerland and Japan will battle it out for a place in the Olympics. We`ll have to do without Espen Knutsen, but at least Patrick Thoresen will play. The games are televised, so it`ll be very interesting watching. Heia Norge!

4-0 final result.

Any players stand out in particular? (I think this game was on TV, no?)

Only saw the 1st period, but Morten Ask looked really good. Skated very well and made things happen. Grotnes was solid in goal and the defense played very good. Special teams were awesome. Brilliant PK and effective PP. Just a great team effort!

We pulled one back today, after a 5-2 win over Japan, led by an all NHL prospect 1st line of Frans Nielsen (NYI, 87th overall, 2002), Peter Regin (OTT, 87th overall, 2004) and Jannik Hansen (VAN, 287th overall, 2004)

Now, we just have to beat Switzerland by a few goals to get in...

We lost 3-1. Poor team effort and biased refs will do that to you..

Another dissapointment. We beat Japan 4-3 earlier today, but it wasn`t enough. Switzerland is most likely through, if they don`t screw up against Denmark later today. I guess we`ll just have to look forward to the Division A World Championships..
