Korea lost its fourth consecutive game at the men’s ice hockey world championship in Herning, Denmark, on Wednesday.

The 18th-ranked Korea lost to world No. 7 Germany 6-1 in Group B action at the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) World Championship.

Canadian-born forward Brock Radunske scored Korea’s lone goal in the third period – the country’s second of the tournament – but it was way too little, too late against Germany at Jyske Bank Boxen.  The shots were 42-26 in favor of Germany.

Germany entered this game with two shoot-out losses and one regulation loss, ahead only of Korea in the eight-nation Group B, and claimed its first win thanks to three power-play goals against the worst penalty-killing team in the tournament.

Korea, the lowest-ranked participant, earlier lost to Finland 8-1, to Canada 10-0 and to Latvia 5-0.

Korea has now given up a tournament-high eight power-play goals and no country has had to kill off more power plays than Korea’s 24.

Korea’s next game will be against the sixth-ranked United States on Friday.  All Group B matches will be played at Jyske Bank Boxen.  Place your bets on your favorite teams and players at 777iGame now!
