I also think that a good Danish hockey program is beneficial for Norwegian hockey. If you guys go down it will probably affect the whole program when it comes to funding and support from the sports community and sponsors as it did for us. This will mainly affect your junior teams and Norway needs Denmark as a strong measuring stick in friendly games and cooperation partner to exchange ideas and so on. I for one would like this collaberation to extend to club hockey as well as I think we should work together to try and make our leagues as strong as Allsvenskan and EBEL but that is another debate.

This is probably easier to do with Denmark than say Italy or Latvia because we are so close both in distance and in many ways culture and language. I know we are supposed to be rivals and everything, but I always cheer for Denmark when you play someone else than us and always keep an extra eye on your NHL-guys. And Denmark is a great rival to have when it comes to media because of our history and proximity.

So with all my hart I say good luck and Heia Danmark.
Firstly i think you are absolutely right about relegation. With only danish league players it will be very difficult to bounce back. I also think that "fueled" with some oil money and Danish-Norwegian league could look interesting....but then the danish clubs needs great funds for travel expenses and also full time pros, since most are still halftime and have jobs. In Denmark the clubs are struggling financially after the economic crises, so norwegian oil money would be handy! The SEL and SM-liiga are too strong for us and KHL has the problem of too many clubs being very far away.
Btw I always cheer for Norwegians as well....... (Danish television always shows clips from Norwegian television when norwegians win something because your "over"-excitement always amuses us...like the 1981 football win against England is a classic...only in Norway )

But thanks for the support and I hope we can even cheer 10% of Bjørge Lillelien after the match.

4 vs 4. All these non-standard situations are threatening to Latvia, as our NT lacks imagination.

4-3 PP to Latvia....not the best start when you could have had danish 5-4 PP (all because of clumsiness).

All was fine, if Daugaviņš tried to play like a teammate. He's not alone! Weak penalty by Denmark.

When has it been? Our weaknesses are PP's, PK's, shootouts.

Interesting game: The danes are obviously dead nervous, and the Latvian players seem not really awake (lost QF complex).

Indrasis had been playing well this WC, including the start of this game.

To be honest, I considered victory over Norway much more important. The only reason, why I care about our victory today is because of the sake of competition.

Larsen is chilling too much in the defensive zone.
