Latvia faces big hockey test against Czechia Monday

After two losses in a row to Canada and then Slovakia, the Latvian national men's ice hockey team will be hoping to find winning ways against the Czechia on Monday, May 15 at the IIHF World Championship.

It is a big ask though, with the Czechs winning both of their first two matches, against Slovakia and then Kazakhstan. Goalscoring has so far been a big problem for Latvia. Despite unleashing more than 50 shots, just one goal has been scored, while conceding eight at the other end of the rink. Maybe Monday is the day the back of the net is visited more often?

We'll find out this evening and as always, the action can be watched on LTV7 and on
