Norway in subgroup B duel with 5: 3 (1: 0, 1: 1, 3: 2) beat Austria, which continues the championship without winning points.
After two minutes of play, Kristians Bulls was nominated by the Norwegian team, but after 20 minutes, Peter Schnaider announced the score. True to the end of the second period, Juhannen Juhannesen regained control of the Norwegians.
For the second time, Austria scored in the middle of the third period when Konstantin Komarek met. Admittedly, it wasn't long before Alexander Reichenberg led the Norwegian team again in the eleventh minute of the period. Bull reached 4: 2 another three minutes late, giving the Norwegians a much more stable lead.
Last minute, Dominik Hainrihs regained one goal, but it didn't prevent the Norwegians from celebrating the victory. The Austrians replaced the goalkeeper with a sixth player who allowed Bullam to complete his six-stunt.
In Group B, Switzerland and Russia have a maximum of 12 points in four games and nine points in the Czech Republic and Sweden. Latvia has six points, while Norway is behind the top five with three points, but Austria and Italy have not reached the points.
