With the silver medal, the German national ice hockey team achieved the best World Cup result in 70 years.
But maybe even more could have been possible for Harold Kreis’ team?
If the decisions had been made in favor of the Germans, the final in Tampere, Finland, could have taken a different turn.
But what were the scenes?
The controversial first goal was conceded by the DEB selection for a 2-2 equalizer late in the second period.
Immediately before Lawson Crouse’s powerplay goal for the Canadiens, Jonas Müller was knocked down in a duel by Cody Glass. Kai Wissmann immediately complained to the referee.
For Philipp Furrer, Swiss television expert, the case was clear: “There should have been a penalty against Canada here.”
The second sensational scene took place in the final third shortly before the Canadians made it 4-2 thanks to Tyler Toffoli (52nd).
In the corresponding attack sequence, we can see that there are six Canadian defenders on the ice momentarily.
“It’s not funny, it’s a mistake”, criticizes expert Jonas Andersson on Swedish television SVT.
But Moritz Seider did not want to attach much importance to this decision. “We didn’t even realize it,” said the NHL defenseman SVT Sports. “It’s not a discussion, we don’t complain about the referees here, we just focus on playing good hockey. We did that throughout the tournament.
