By winning on penalties (4-3), the Austrians saved themselves. A year after gaining their accession to the world elite, the Hungarians are coming down. Monday, they led 3-1, before being caught in the score.
The France team was ured of maintaining itself since Saturday. She will finish sixth in her group and will complete her World Cup on Tuesday (11:20 a.m.) against Germany. In the same group, Sweden dominated Denmark (4-1) and thus signed their sixth victory in as many outings.
In Group B, Norway caused a sensation, beating Canada on penalties (3-2). The Scandinavians led 2-0, before Milan Lucic (Calgary Flames) and Lawson Crouse (Arizona Coyotes), the latter with 11 seconds remaining, revived Canada. But the penalty shootout smiled on the Norwegians. For the honor, Kazakhstan won against Slovenia (4-3), the other promoted, which therefore lost all its matches.
