Latvia prepares for big hockey game against Canada

Latvia's national ice hockey team on May 14 face Canada in an important match at the IIHF world championships in Denmark.

And while a match in two days' time against hosts Denmark is likely to decide whether Latvia advance to the latter stages of the tournament, the chance of securing a surprise result against a powerful Canadian team is not being ignored, with the team management - led by Canadian coach Bob Hartley - insisting an upset is possible after Latvia defeated Germany May 12.

Previews and updates when the match is in progress (starting 21:00 Riga time) will be available at the official championship website HERE
