Duggan & Antonov had their ice time cut down a ton but glad to see Betteridge seems to have moved into the lineup now. He played the last few shifts with Duggan/Antonov which is a line I'd rather see.

I'd love to see them go:
Venus-Stewart-Mackie
Chamberalin-Cownie-Hook
Antonov-Duggan-Betteridge
they don't use the 4th line anyway

Either move Selby to defense or leave him on the 4th line. He brings nothing to the table as a forward.

Could've been a cracking time to get more people interested. Would have like terrestrial tv taking a crack at it for the tournament.

Ukraine beat Japan, so it looks like Japan is the game we are going to have to win to avoid relgation. Ukraine should be a winnable game though.

Looks like those lines will happen with Selby injured.

This is why I don't understand why they take 8 D & 12 F rather than 7/13. Now they're down a forward with 1 injury

Duggan with his first point

betteridge on that line is a big plus, he battles more than Selby did

I've yelled at my TV a couple times when Hook & his line dump it in and go in on a forecheck when they really should be changing. It's a long change in the 2nd period, you can't piss away changes.

Probably the best GB U20 performance I've watched through 2 periods so far and it's only 2-2. France is good and they're not only keeping up with them but controlling the puck well. They're getting the pucks deep and battling in the corners which is what they have to do, they can't out dangle France lol I still get scared at the defense quite a bit, they stand there watching France and they seem to like going for hits at the blue line. It's worked so far but 1 missed hit and France can bury no problem.

Stewart is separating himself from the rest tonight. His end to end skate finally showed off his skating is better than the rest, he seems to have figured out when he can & can't be physical with international refs, and he keeps showing his defensive smarts which he's always done.

Saw a lot of Taylor/Morris that period and a lot less of Duggan which surprised me.

What a game

Love all the UK hockey fans who say lower standard = lower excitement when debating import limits

That game was more exciting than every Rangers NHL game I have watched this year combined

On that note, when is the NHL going to switch to Olympic ice

That's what I meant to ask! Is Dumfries using Olympic ice? That doesn't look very big?

Does GB actually have the youngest team at the tournament, it seems we have some of the younger players there with a 16 year old and a 15 year old, then some of the younger 17 year olds.

A Kazakh win followed by GB beating Ukraine would mean GB can't possibly get relegated.

If GB wins against Ukraine & Japan and France loses tomorrow to Kazakhstan, GB will earn bronze
