The Czech Republic beat Belarus 3:0 at the Ice Hockey World Championships in Denmark on Friday evening. It was the Czechs’ fourth victory in the tournament but the first in which they took maximum points. All three goals, from Libor Šulák, Roman Horák and Michal Řepík, came in the first period. Goaltender Pavel Francouz achieved his fifth shutout for the national team.
That result leaves coach Josef Jandač’s team third in Group A at the worlds. Their next game is against France on Sunday.
